Willy Wonka meets electronic music in a cutting-edge multi-sensory live show. 

   Unusual Ingredients brings to life the fascinating  relationships between sound and flavour. Join food artist Caroline Hobkinson and musicians and sound artists Jacob Thompson-Bell and Adam Martin for a unique event guaranteed to delight all the senses.  Unusual Ingredients guides the audience through a menu featuring popping candy, honey, coffee, seaweed, tamarind and more, each paired with a specially-composed piece of music to dramatise and amplify its flavours and textures in extraordinary ways. Drawing on the latest gastrophysical research into our sensory perception, Unusual Ingredients is an unmissable event for anyone with a love of music, food or science.
