A night of gastronomy and culture at The Wallace
To commemorate the end of The Wallace Collection’s The Noble Art of the Sword: Fashion and Fencing in Renaissance Europe, Peyton and Byrne and The Wallace are delighted to be hosting a very special evening on Friday 14th September.
Starting at 6.30, guests will be brought on an exclusive tour of the exhibition, guided byTobias Capwell, curator of arms and armoury at the Wallace Collection. The tour, which will last approximately one hour, will explore highlights of the collection. Following the tour guests will enjoy a delicious three course dinner devised by the Wallace Restaurant head chef, Ivan Simeoli. He has created a three course contemporary menu including dishes such as wild boar and foie gras terrine with candy capers, and brioche-crusted loin of hare with rowan berries and black trompettes.
The Noble Art of the Sword: Fashion and Fencing in Renaissance Europe comprises exquisite and deadly weapons from the Wallace Collection, public and private British collections and masterpieces previously unseen in Britain from the great princely collections of Vienna and Dresden. The very best sixteenth and early seventeenth century swords are displayed alongside beautifully decorated fencing manuals, portraits, designs and books.
The exhibition will finish on the 16th September, so this will be your last opportunity to see these beautiful works of art. Places are extremely limited, so book now!
