Due to the ongoing impact of Omicron, we regrettably have had to reschedule Mythical Feast: Atalanta to Saturday 9 July 2022. Due to winter weather conditions, this event will now be hosted in the opulent Henson Room within the Hellenic Museum for the improved comfort of all guests.
Enjoy an evening in the Hellenic Museum’s enchanting gallery space and let us transport you back to the ancient world. Our Mythical Feast will invoke the spirit of ancient symposia, allowing you to experience Greek myths just like the ancients did.
Guests will enjoy a luscious shared feast while listening to a bard tell a version of the myth of Atalanta – the famed huntress and slayer of the dreadful Calydonian Boar. Throughout history, the bard was a master of song, speech and professional storyteller. The feasting tables will be positioned in our dreamy Henson gallery, and the menu will take inspiration from the myth of Atalanta and ancient Greek recipes.
This opulent and unique gastronomic experience will take you back to the age of heroes and bring Atalanta’s story to life through culinary wonder and delight.
