It is with great pleasure that Georgian Dining Academy invite you to an evening of sweet excitement, bringing the eighteenth century alive. There will be an opportunity to make your own confectioners’ delights and to join in decorating cakes large and small, all with maritime and foundling token subjects.

With these sugary nuggets we aim to celebrate the life of George King, from abandonment to Trafalgar. Also, to please the eye there will be a splendid display of a confectionery with all manner of sweet delights plus a glorious centrepiece celebrating the Museum, the foundlings and Trafalgar.

A sweet tooth is not a requisite, but it might assist with your enjoyment of the event. Georgian costume is encouraged but not insisted upon!

The Georgian Dining Academy is hosted by Miss B and Miss Kitty Pridden. It all began by creating a quarterly historic dining experience at Simpson’s Tavern in the heart of the City. An evening spent within the candlelit booths of a historic chop house, enjoying a carefully crafted three course meal, gaming with chocolate coins and regaled with tales of the 18th Century. Guests are encouraged to dress up for the evening, several of our regulars have created vibrant Georgian characters that they bring to life at each event. We have gone from strength to strength in our endeavour to create a Georgian world in the 21st Century.

Miss B and Miss Kitty Pridden trained as City of London Guides and qualified in 2012. From the original concept created by Miss B in 2012, and encouraged by co-host, Miss Kitty Pridden, they decided to launch the Georgian Dining Academy together in November 2014. The expertise and knowledge of Miss Kitty, who lives in a glorious Georgian bubble as an 18th Century socialite and time traveller, combined with Miss B’s love of dressing up, organisation and promotion skills, make them a formidable team. Their heart’s desire is to share their enjoyment of this glorious, riotous and exciting period with you all.
