An Evening of Hogarth, Gin and Food at Tate Britain


This March, Tate Britain is celebrating the great artist, satirist and everyman William Hogarth with a closer look at the art he created and the vices he enjoyed - gin and fine food.

The evening will begin with a private tour of the contents of the museum’s Hogarth Room. Guests will then be treated to a gin-themed cocktail-and-canapé reception in the Grand Saloon, where they will learn about the history of gin and sample different styles. Then it’s onto the museum’s lavish Rex Whistler restaurant, for a three-course menu themed around some of Hogarth’s most famous paintings, such as The Shrimp Girl (1745) and O The Roast Beef of Olde England (1748).

Tickets to this event cost £85, including entry to The Hogarth Room, cocktails, food and wine pairings, plus water and coffee (service excluded). To book, visit Tate Britain’s website.
