London Restaurant Festival: AA Gill, Clarissa Dickson Wright, Kirsty Young and others lead The Big Debate
As part of this year’s London Restaurant Festival (a 2 week celebration of eating out in the capital which kicks off on October 3), Kings Place plays host to The Big Debate on October 11, with AA Gill proposing the motion, ‘there’s no such thing as ethnic food’. Fuelled by the increasing number of regional producers demanding protected status for their goods, the debate is chaired by broadcaster Kirsty Young, with Gill joined in the ‘for’ camp by cultural commentator Jonathan Meades, while Clarissa Dickson Wright and Hardeep Singh Kohli defending the rights of producers and arguing ‘against’. Tickets cost £22.50, and an optional dinner can be taken afterwards in the Rotunda restaurant. Book now.
