Dining with Alice 
Elsing Hall, Norfolk, May 2011

A theatrical dinner adventure conceived and directed by Hilary Westlake with creative company Artichoke. Bompas & Parr provided a four course Victorian feast for 2,304 people that culminated with dessert served on a floating pontoon in the middle of Elsing Halls moat. Over the course of the production 8.1 tonnes of cutlery was hand washed and 576 Holkham beef pies cooked and served.

'Dining with Alice' was directed by Hilary Westlake and produced by Artichoke for Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2011, as part of the Sky Arts Artichoke Season.
