Unless you're a brain-guzzling zombie or sweet-guzzling trick or treater, Halloween most likely won't conjure up images of fine dining. But London Town has hunted down the most fangtastic food events celebrating All Hallows this year.

 
 

Dinner at the Twits

A fabulous feast of foul food, served by Mr and Mrs Twit.

The Vaults, Arch 233, 10 Leake Street, London, SE1 7NN

Tube: Waterloo Station, Lambeth North Station

 

Dates: 04th September - 30th October 2016

 

No revolting children allowed at Dinner at the Twits - and it's not for the faint of heart or soft of stomach among the adults either. Celebrating a hundred years of Roald Dahl, Dinner at the Twits will include a banquet of deliciously disgusting dishes - you'll find a glass eye in your cocktail, and a slice of bird pie - and this fabulously foul food is served while you're entertained by your horrid hosts, Mr and Mrs Twit. Les Enfants Terribles and ebp, the team behind the Olivier Award-nominated smash hit Alice's Adventures Underground, have been working with gastronomic wunderkinds Bompas & Parr to create this gloriously gruesome interactive theatrical dining experience.
