Opening from 22 June in a secret London location, the pop-up experience will offer guests a welcome cocktail and “four course interactive meal, set design and entertainment”, with food and drinks inspired by George Lucas’ iconic sci-fi franchise.

Organised by Barrel and Forks, specialists in immersive dining experiences, the location of The Fork Awakens will be revealed to lucky ticket holders just 48 hours before the event.

While details are somewhat vague, the experience will be set in “in Darth Vader’s kingdom” and “will take Foodtroopers into an immersive journey through time and space, with many familiar encounters and interactive adventures along the way.”

Setting the scene, event organisers said: “It is a period of culinary abundance: rebel spies have managed to steal secret recipes to the empire’s canteen and Aunt Beru, and take them to the Death star, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet”.

The evening’s menu includes Tattooine muddy soup with Alderaan olive oil, Tusken raiders lava soufflé and hutt dogs, among other Star Wars-themed treats.

It follows the opening of a pop-up bar inspired by locations from the film series at a Star Wars convention in Manchester. Named the Cantina bar, the space serve eager fans blue “bantha milk” cocktails, which Luke Skywalker first drinks in Star Wars Episode IV. In the films blue milk could be found on most planets across the galaxy and was known for being rich, refreshing and sweet. The Cantina cocktail is made with Irish Meadow Country Cream, Red Square Vodka and a dash of blue food colouring.

The bar featured an Ewok village, Yoda’s Dagobah swamp and Jabba The Hutt’s palace complete with an eight-foot model of the slug-like creature.

The Fork Awakens will open for ten nights between 22 June and 2 July for 10 dates at a secret London location. Tickets cost £55 per guest. Click here for more info and tickets.
