Hosted in unique spaces F.E.A.S.T. brings people together over locally sourced food to discuss sustainable farming, the environment and culture.
F.E.A.S.T. will focus and encourage debate, linking social, environmental, scientific and cultural thinking; providing a dynamic forum for guests. Each meal will be opened with provocations from both the arts and science. These will catalyse the conversation, with all guests involved in the discussion.
F.E.A.S.T. has been created by sisters Kate and Liz Genever; an artist and scientist respectively but also farmers. The family own a traditional mixed farm in a village in South Lincolnshire. Agriculture and its related concerns are central to their work, as is encouraging people to think, reflect and do.
F.E.A.S.T. is a response to their interest in raising awareness about the rural in an artful way. It offers a social atmosphere, delicious food and an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding on inter-connected topics. We welcome guests with a wide range of interests, backgrounds and specialisms.
Each F.E.A.S.T. utilises locally sourced ingredients, including surplus food to produce a range of plant and animal-based dishes. Each dinner lasts three hours and has 25 places.
