Event Details

 

Miss B & Miss Kitty Pridden of The Georgian Dining Academy are delighted to offer a special collaboration event with Dr Johnson's House to celebrate the literary legend's Birthday.

 

This will be our second celebration of the great man in one of his London homes. We will be working our Georgian magic throughout the floors of this historic home to pay homage to Samuel Johnson and his many fascinating guests. 17 Gough Square is the only remaining residence of Johnson, and it was here he wrote his famous Dictionary. The house itself is an architectural gem, with a wealth of original features. It seemed the fitting place to celebrate the life of literary giant Dr Johnson, and create a bespoke event to bring the house and the Georgian period back to life.

 

Our infamous gin punch served in the Garret under the very rafterswhere Dr Johnson and six busy clerks worked tirelessly on his Dictionary. A delicious Georgian inspired three course meal with wine is served in the first floor rooms, moveable 18th Century panelling opens up to create a truly unique space. Where, throughout the evening you will hear short talks on Samuel Johnson and his life. In true Georgian style we will be encouraging the gambling with chocolate coins at your tables, then the perfect way to wind down the evening, imbibing in port & cheese.

 

We are honoured to be able to host this exciting dining experience in such a historic venue. This delightful and insightful museum is open to the public during the day, and displays a wealth of material and information. Money from the ticket sales of this exciting event will be going back into this beautiful house, helping with the running costs and constant preservation of the historic collection housed within it. 

 

 

Costumes are not necessary but guests are encouraged to dress up, the historic atmosphere of the evening is greatly enhanced with the addition of costumed diners. The Georgian Dining Academy is in no way a re-enactment, and we graciously and warmly welcome any who chose to make an effort - to whatever level that may be. Those of our guests wishing to embrace the idea of an 18th Century costume upgrade can enjoy a generous discount from West End costumiers Angel's.
