Digesting History: Three courses of poetry and performance - Live Late


Explore your Central Library after dark as we transform the building for a theatrical dining experience with a menu of poetry, history and live performance.


Inspired by the British Library’s sold-out exhibition Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War, Digesting History will reimagine the Anglo-Saxon tradition of feasting and storytelling, bringing to life the worlds of poetry created and performed by Rachel BowerKayo Chingonyi and Joe Kriss. In collaboration with The Foodhall Project, expect to devour your way through three courses of theatrical revelry, food and spoken word, until your bellies are full.




  • Doors & Bar open: 6.30pm

  • First Show: 7pm

  • Second Show: 8pm


All food served will be plant based
