Eating Sound + The Truscott Arms

The second instalment.

In October last year, Soapbox & Sons brought a magical experience to The Truscott Arms – Eating Sound.

After connecting the dots between the pub and the composer, Sam Bailey, they have been very busy creating the second instalment of Eating Sound, this time themed ‘Spring’.

Last night, I attended as a guest, and the event didn’t disappoint.

What is Eating Sound?
Eating Sound is a unique dining experience where food is used to deepen the understanding of sound. A live chamber orchestra help diners make the connection between timbre, texture and taste — ultimately refreshing the perception of flavour and sound.

This Spring Banquet dining room was, as with the Autumn one previously, bedecked to reflect the season. The wait staff wore masks made by The Masketeers, whose animal creations (featured at the Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Wilderness and Summer Sunset) are bespoke, expert and truly glorious.
