Pop-up craze gets political

The ever imaginative Bompas & Parr have been celebrating General Election fever with a politically-themed pop-up restaurant.

The Parliamentary Waffle House opened last week in Soho, London, and will be hosting a series of election-related entertainment, culminating in the big night itself on 6 May.

Each option on the all-day menu is available in three variations corresponding to each of the main UK parties. As diners vote with their mouths, their orders feed into a live swingometer, which gauges the political mood of the nation.

The next event offers a warm-up battle on the evening of the final leadership debate, as the Love Marmite and Hate Marmite camps fight it out to determine the future of one of the world’s most divisive spreads. Watch the action unfold, accompanied by a selection of Marmite waffles, bloody Marmites and Marmitinis.

Also on the line-up is The Thick of It night on 3 May and an evening of political word-play on 4 May, complete with word games, improvisation and satirical food. Finally, 6 May sees the Election Night Extravaganza, an all-night party of food, politics and partying.

Tickets for all events are available through Ticketweb.

The Parliamentary Waffle House is located at 65-67 Broadwick Street, open Monday to Saturday from noon til 11pm. The venue is licensed to sell alcohol from Wednesday to Saturday.
