Open House Days – 3, 4, 5, 7 July [FREE ENTRY]
On these four days, the arena is free to enter and our event space will evolve into a fully immersive tour of Italy’s regions. We’ve got some old favourite street food traders back from previous years, and some new elements for you to discover, here’s what you can expect:
MORETTI GRAN TOUR EXPERIENCE
New for this year is the Moretti Gran Tour Experience where you can take your senses on a tour of Italy. Each room of our immersive theatre features authentic food, sights, smells, textures, culture – and the finest beer, of course – from our favourite regions of Italy.
Visit the orange groves in Sicily, the rolling hills of Tuscany, a rustic village in Emilia Romagna and the home of Birra Moretti, Udine – all without ever leaving London!
There’s so much for you to discover. Will a salty sea breeze brighten the citrus notes in Birra Moretti alla Siciliana? How will your taste buds respond to different flavours of molecular caviar? Each tour takes 45 minutes and each of the four regions features a sample of the Birra Moretti range and an aperitivo dish.
Tickets cost £10 + booking fee and can be booked here.
Experience only available to over 18s.
YET MORE DELICIOUS STREET FOOD
On the Open House Days we have even more of our good friends cooking up taste sensations. Perfetto! We welcome Camden Market sensations The Cheese Wheel to serve their innovative Fettucine Alfredo (pasta dishes cooked inside a massive wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano – what’s not to like?!), and Cheeky Italian will be serving up a Meatball Parm hero which is filled with fried chicken, pork & beef meatballs, mozzarella, marinara sauce in a toasted roll.
And we still have our show day food vendors with us – Pizza Pilgrims will be serving their super-special Carbonara Pizza whilst Arancini Brothers will be serving Sweet Bourbon Bean Vanilla Arancini with a range of sauces as well as their traditional flavours; classic mozzarella with citrus arancini, mushroom zucchini arancini & spicy sweet potato with smokey cheese arancini all served with homemade aubergine and tomato dipping sauce and garlic aioli.
A GREAT ATMOSPHERE
We’ll have live DJs every day, traditional Italian games to take part in and if that’s somehow not enough to tempt you, there are many loads of other things happening in the arena for you to enjoy.
So whenever you decide to spend some quality time with us, you can be sure to expect great beer and great food. We look forward to seeing you there.
