Headway East London
Headway East London, a Hackney based charity supporting people affected by brain injury, presents the Winter edition of its sell-out Headway EATS supper clubs. This November 22nd will see 50 lucky diners indulge in a three-course meal: cooked, served and eaten alongside brain injury survivors-turned burgeoning chefs. Admission promises extraordinary food and an immersive experience of Headway’s unique community: this time focusing on the work of the charity’s art studio.
Utilising the skills, enthusiasm and energy of the charity’s membership*, the three-course menu is the result of development sessions where members are encouraged to explore their memories and stories of food to create recipe ideas for the evening, whilst constantly refining their culinary skill sets.
‘Come and eat the food at Headway. It’s made with love, served with a smile and eaten with joy.’ – Member (Margie)
The evening will begin with a welcome reception before guests, staff, volunteers and members sit and eat together on shared tables for a sociable, inclusive experience. Each night also includes a diverse range of member-led performances, in a celebration of Headway’s creativity. This Winter edition will be art-focused; showcasing the results of a recent exhibition at Could Be Good gallery in London. “Oh to be human” presents a series of printed works exploring first impressions and identity by artists who have lived through a life-altering experience which is sometimes visible, and sometimes not. Artists will talk about their work, and diners will also be encouraged to participate in creative activity throughout the evening.
‘You’re all enjoying the same food in synchrony, and in this case, stopping together to hear a song or a story….This evening spun me into worlds I doubt I’d have crossed otherwise….’ – Hackney Bubble review
