Ever tried picking up rice or a pork ball with a pair of chopsticks, or chasing a pea around your plate with a fork?
That is the daunting challenge facing diners at the Henry Wong restaurant in High Street, Harborne, Birmingham, on Wednesday 11 October following an invitation to experience Dinner in the Dark.
The special event, which is in aid of visually impaired charity Focus Birmingham, is designed to illustrate the everyday difficulties facing people with sight loss.
The Chief Executive of Focus Birmingham, Susan Hoath, said: “This is a unique sensory event in Birmingham in terms of a dining experience, so we hope as many people as possible will sign up to have a go at eating a meal while wearing a blindfold.
“It promises to be a really fun event but, of course, it also carries a very serious underlying message of how thousands of people in the Birmingham area cope on a daily basis with visual impairment.”
The owner of Henry Wong, Parm Rai, added: “We’re delighted to be supporting Focus Birmingham by hosting this truly unique event. We are sure that guests will have a fantastic, and interesting, evening while raising much needed funds for this local charity.”
The ticket price of £40 will include a 3 course meal and complimentary drink. Our charity fundraising event will also be hosting an auction, giving you the chance to win some fantastic items, so book your tickets now and get ready for a dinner with a difference!
We hope to raise awareness for those people living with sight loss in Birmingham as well as much needed funds to continue providing our vital services. Click here to book early to avoid disappointment as there are limited places available.
