Autumn Meals at The School of Life

Announcement from The School of Life:

"We think that knowing how to have entertaining and meaningful conversations is a skill worth practising this autumn, so we provide diners with a specially-designed conversation menu inspired by the ideas of history's movers and shakers that ensures you don't end up talking about the congestion charge or nervously reaching for the diminishing bread basket.

Come alone or with a friend, and expect the sort of stimulating and heart-warming conversations we have all dreamt of having, but so rarely do"

Dine with Ruskin
12 September 2011, 19.30 - 22.30
John Ruskin could be viewed as the Jay Jopling of his time. He tirelessly promoted the YBAs of his era - Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites. He was also thoroughly committed to the need for individual creative expression.
This evening’s meal takes place at the Saatchi Gallery.
Tickets cost £55.00, for more information and to book please click here.

Dinner with Virginia Woolf
11 October 2011, 19.30 - 22.30
Woolf tells us, there are no insignificant lives, only inadequate ways of looking at them. So there’ll be no excuse for contenting yourself with the ordinary or prosaic as we are kept in check over dinner by literature’s greatest observer of human nature.
This evening's meal takes place at Bea's of Bloomsbury.
Tickets cost £60.00, for more information and to book please click here.

Curry with Gandhi
25 October 2011, 19.30 - 22.30
A modern prophet of the simple life, we’ll explore how scaling down and paring away can be internally enriching and intellectually stimulating.

A Fry-up With Jack Kerouac
30 October 2011, 11.30-13.30
Bacon and eggs served with a side of magic mushrooms? Perhaps not. But we can offer a legal way to enhance your senses, jolt your perspective, and undergo what Kerouac celebrated as “satori”, “a sudden awakening” or more simply, “a kick in the eye”.
Come and join us in London’s most authentic 1950’s coffee house, The Troubadour Cafe.
Tickets cost £30.00, for more information and to book please click here.

Dinner With Michel De Montaigne
23 November 2011, 19.30 – 22.30
The Renaissance was a golden era of conversation, and none loved it more than the sixteenth-century French writer Michel de Montaigne: wine-grower, nobleman, diplomat and the inventor of the art of the essay.
Dinner will be served in the extraordinary Royal Institution of Great Britain.
Tickets cost £75.00, for more informationand to book please click here.

Dinner With Georges Perec
7 December 2011, 19.30 – 22.30
The French novelist Georges Perec was fascinated by the everyday and defined an ambition to write books that would record what he termed the "infraordinary": the humdrum, the non-event, the everyday, "what happens," as he put it, "when nothing happens."
This evening’s event takes its inspiration from Perec's interest in the everyday at Drink, Shop & Do.
Tickets cost £35.00, for more information and to book please click here.
