LOAM Popup Restaurant

The Loam family is delighted to invite you to a celebratory feast and an immersive evening to mark the beauty and bounty of the autumn season. Our feasts are designed for the veg-inclined with a flavoursome, ingredient-led menu by guest chef Jack Williams (Westerns Laundry, ex-Primeur).

Inspired by our childhood memories of eating at the big family table, together with our passion for sustainable dining, we utilise community-grown produce primarily from London farms to create abundant ingredient-led platters bursting with flavour.

Loam means ‘fertile soil’ and our October dining experience will be held close to the earth, on the beautiful Oasis Farm Waterloo, in the centre of the big city, with our long banquet tables laid in a beautiful architecturally-designed barn on site.

Discover – Start the evening with a beautifully crafted cocktail while you explore the farm and try your hand at pickle-making (hosted by London ferment producer Tickle Pickle) using surplus farm produce.

Tickets will include a cocktail upon arrival, pickle making mini-class, four courses and tea or coffee, with wine available to purchase on the evening.

One Woman Show by Michelle Zahner ‘A Modern Guide to Heroism and Sidekickery’

Before she disappears off to Australia, Michelle is previewing her very first solo show in London, one night only, in a barn in Waterloo. There’ll be warm drinks, there’ll be a bar, bring your own blanket and get ready for a story…

Everyone knows how superhero stories work.

Save day, rescue damsel, witty one-liner, post-credits scene. But Michelle Zahner doesn’t want to do that. She wants to ask the real questions: Why are there never pockets in lycra costumes? How do heroes make rent? What if there’s no villain? And why don’t we have a word for a male damsel?

For this mission, she’s combining storytelling, poetry, comedy and physical theatre. With an accidental superhero, a lost journalist and a girl who doesn’t need saving she explores what we expect from heroes, and what might happen if we get it.

This event is raising money for Oasis Farm Waterloo, they’re pretty cool people, check them out here: http://oasisfarmwaterloo.org/
