Many people will be thinking about a dinner date for Valentine’s Day this year, but within the walls of Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, couples can experience something a little more special.
Lovebirds can enjoy a bespoke and delicious five-course meal at the special after-hours event in the spectacular surroundings of the Industrial Gallery.
Be spoiled with a five-course Valentine’s Day menu cooked by Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery’s expert chef team.
A choice of dishes include Mediterranean vegetable tart tatin and assiette of wild mushroom risotto cake starters, and main dishes include rump of lamb with dauphinoise potatoes, honey parsnip puree and mint jus or pan fried cod with smoked haddock and celeriac mash and watercress sauce, along with others.
The desserts on the menu will surely tempt diners for more, including a sharing board of cheeses, biscuits and chutneys, or for the sweeter tooth, a rich chocolate fondant served with ice cream.
To make the experience even more special, local guitarist and singer-songwriter Robert Lane will be serenading diners with live music throughout the evening.
It’s not just the food visitors can treat their loved one with in February! Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery’s gift shop is the perfect place to find that thoughtful and individual Valentine’s Day gift. You can even shop from the comfort of your own home at the Birmingham Museums’ online shop shop.birminghammuseums.org.uk.
Alex Nicholson-Evans, Commercial Director at Birmingham Museums, said: “What better way to treat your loved one this Valentine’s Day than to take them for dinner in a unique location like Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. It’s something different they won’t be expecting and the menu will be cooked by our expert team to ensure you don’t have to worry about a thing.
“With music and the beautiful surroundings of the Industrial Gallery, our dinner is the ideal way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.”
The five-course meal costs £47.50 per head. Tables can be booked from 7pm – 9pm, but you’ll need to act quickly as this event sold out last year. A deposit will be taken prior to the meal.
Proceeds from the dinner will support the work of Birmingham Museums Trust as an educational charity.
