Agropolis site, 154 High St (access via Poplar Lane)

Friday 24 October & Saturday 25 October, 6-10pm

Both dining sessions at the Tunnel House Supper Club were sold out within an hour of the tickets going on sale for the five-course meal with wine matches.

On Friday and Saturday night, 30 lucky patrons arrived to take their seats at the long, communal table in the pop-up restaurant and experience delicious, ethical food that was gathered from places situated as close to the dining site as possible.

The design team used materials from the Rekindle Whole House Project to design and build the pop up restaurant and kitchen that was set up on the Agropolis Urban Farm site for two nights of FESTA.

Chefs Alex Davies of Shop Eight and Giulio Sturla of Roots Restaurant teamed up with Muddy Water and Black Estate vineyards from Waipara to create a unique dining experience that was reflective of the design process and transitional environment – food that responds to its surrounds.
