Each exclusive event will see Manchester’s best chefs create a one-off, immersive dining experience, themed around a different exhibition taking place in the stunning surroundings of Manchester Art Gallery.

Each event is designed to celebrate the greatest artists of our time, as part of an experience that will delight all the senses and offer real insight into their life, times – and, of course, food.

The first event in the season is Dine with Da Vinci – an authentic Italian supper club created by local specialists Salvi’s on Saturday 27th April.

Guests will be greeted with a glass of Italian fizz, after which Manchester Art Gallery’s expert curators will treat them to a private tour of the Leonardo Da Vinci: A Life In Drawing exhibition

The show closes on Monday 6th May and all remaining tours have sold out, so this is a chance to enjoy an exclusive insight into 12 of Da Vinci’s iconic drawings before the exhibition is returned to the Royal Collection.

At the heart of Dine With Da Vinci is an authentic Italian banquet, inspired by the produce and recipes of Da Vinci’s own era and served in the public galleries at the heart of Manchester Art Gallery.

Surrounded by emotive Italian live music and incredible works of art, the menu has been designed by Maurizio Cecco, owner of Manchester’s award-winning Italian restaurant, Salvi’s.

The four-course feast is designed to be shared as a long-table banquet. Taking place in the soaring, historic Gallery 9 and 10, surrounded by fine art, this immersive and unique experience is a chance to dine with friends, family, and lovers in a fabulous environment.
