Picture the scene: our international man of mystery is strapped to a gurney with a whirring saw wheel rapidly approaching his groin. “Do you exshpect me to die?”, “No, Mr Bon I expect-” our hero interjects “Hang on, I think you mean ‘Mr Bond’?”, “NO, Mr Bon, it’s a complex legal licensing issue… and I expect you to DINE. Here’s a canapé”.

The whole world adores infamous man-whore, MI6 agent and on/off saviour-of-the-world James Bond, but what about the women who briefly share the limelight and bodily fluids with the undercover(s) hero? Well the latest immersive dining experience turns the classic spy film narrative on its head, looking at things from the women’s perspective, a sort of ‘Femme Fatales with Food’. The immersive evening sees top secret agent Jen der Paygap and Naomi Nzno (geddit?) lead diners through a web of intrigue and international mystery.

‘Jimmy Bon’ (this presumably isn’t a Broccoli sanctioned enterprise) has been missing, presumed dead, for six months and it’s time for a new OO7, but only after we’ve had Mr Bon’s funeral. Taking place in the tunnels below Waterloo Station, guests file in to pay their respects, then the fun begins. Over the course of a Martini studded meal expect to pick sides and work together to crack codes and solve the mystery behind Jimmy Bon’s disappearance. And his long list of wronged women won’t make that any easier.

This tongue in cheek (whose?) Bond/Bon themed immersive dinner arrives at The Vault, the subterranean venue beneath Waterloo, this April. Buy tickets here and see Bond through a woman’s lens, solve the riddle and enjoy a thoroughly decent meal.
