Courtesy of Selfridges, Festival of Imagination promises a quirky line up of arts events.
‘Touching Taste’ 6.30pm–7.30pm
In this interactive food lecture, concept chef and artist Caroline Hobkinson will challenge the way we perceive food by presenting it as art, exploring sound and touch.
There is also a chance to explore the role of the garden as a space for deep-rooted innovation and investigation, with the Edible Garden by Edible Eastside, as nature enters the Imaginarium in the Food Hall.
