A floating, feeding & falling dream.


“It is commonly known, in the society of aeronauts, astrologers, dreamers and all who divine such things, that every half-a-century the spirits of the air, summon the fearless to a Grand Expedition. Adventurers and travellers are called to venture; to go forth, forage and feast."


The Grand Expedition will take budding aeronauts on a journey, beyond the clouds and back, for 5 fantastical courses, at a top-secret, long forgotten location, somewhere on the Victoria Line.

This grand adventure will test the limits of what a dining experience could ever be. A fusion of live animation, dance display, flavoursome delights and exquisite set design. Although you won't believe it, this grand adventure all happens in one room, taking us back to a Classic Gingerline dining format.

Part dance spectacle, part multi-media simulation, part poetical dream-scape, this experience is designed for adventurous people who want an unconventional, unforgettable, once in a lifetime dining adventure.

Critic reviews

Gingerline’s latest culinary odyssey mixes mind-blowing food with some iffy national stereotypes

Time Out

Probably best enjoyed by peeps who love supper clubs and inspired dining, but sauced with a hugely entertaining ketchup of dance and activity

The Londonist

The Grand Expedition is a pleasant, protracted evening with a unified aesthetic and some exciting results


Gingerline's latest immersive dining experience takes the form of a gorgeously designed global gastronomic adventure

The Stage

Hints of the misconceived balloon rides of Phileas Fogg with a touch of Disney-like energy bring together a rather fabulous and original experience, perfect for groups or a giggly first date

The Upcoming

An evening that is truly unique, and I'd still recommend it. Focus as much as possible on enjoying the food, don't worry too much about what's going on around it, and you'll have a Grand (culinary) Expedition to remember

Broadway World

Immersive theatre? That’s so 2018. Move over, and make room for immersive dining, the brainchild of Gingerline theatre company

Everything Theatre

I’ve been to other dining experiences but Gingerline are definitely the market leader: no-one does it quite like this
