What's it all about?

With the sense of sight completely removed, the evening will allow guests to enjoy and appreciate food in a completely different way, identifying hidden flavours whilst gaining an understanding of what life without your eyesight is like.

Helen Rowe from Henshaws explained,

"Studies have shown that 80 percent of people eat with their eyes, so with that sense eliminated, the theory is that the other senses - namely taste and smell - take over."

“Henshaws provides expert care, advice, and training to local people affected by sight loss and other disabilities, right where it’s needed most. And because a person’s sight loss affects friends, family, and colleagues, we work with them too.”

George Bergier is one of Manchester’s most renowned sommeliers and will be guiding guests through a hand-selected wine list, specially designed to complement the four-course meal.

Dave Steele, a Manchester born, visually impaired poet and songwriter will be sharing his story and poems with guests in between courses.

Tickets cost £65 per person and every ticket purchased will support the work that Henshaws’ is doing to give emotional and practical help across the North West of England for adults and children living with a visual impairment.
