Cathedral Quarter

The Botanical Garden Bar & Kitchen is currently closed for the season. 

curious directive is an internationally touring theatre company, based in Norwich as well as a Botanical Garden Bar & Kitchen in Elm Hill. Since 2008, curious directive has explored theatre through the lens of science. They’ve achieved 20 awards and are 6-times published by Bloomsbury.

This summer, bag a ticket to one of the hottest performances in Norwich! Take your place to enjoy a theatrical 7-course tasting menu set onboard an Airbus A380.

Gastronomic takes places from Thursday 18 May to Saturday 1 July 2023 and casts its 43 audience members as passengers on-board an evening flight to London Heathrow. Three world-class chefs deliver a 7-course tasting menu and reveal the inner mechanics and processes of how the dishes are created in real-time. Gastronomic explores migration, memory and molecular gastronomy, making a case for the soft-power of food.

Led by Artistic Director Jack Lowe, their work has been presented in over 100 venues and reached 175,000 audience members – and they are regulars at prestigious international festivals.

curious directive has a Studio Theatre, co-working space and runs the popular Botanical Garden Bar & Kitchen.
