Nightmares and Nibbles

Nightmares & Nibbles, Vortex Creates at Old Grammar School

This Halloween we took the plunge and produced our first ticketed immersive event.

Taking inspiration from Frankenstein, we created a no holds barred theatrical and food experience to challenge the mind and the senses!  Many tried Dr Frankenstein’s miracle cures and tonics from questionable sources!  Entrusted by Culture Coventry with the spectacular Old Grammar school, and various pieces of historical taxidermy from the Herbert Art Gallery’s collection the Vortex team created an immersive space for some Halloween fun.

Huge thanks to our fabulous performers Claire, Michelle and Emily,
Ellie McCann for expertly bringing our twisted culinary ideas to the table,
Shanise, Xena and Mo for lifting those cloches,
Adie Blundel for lending us artwork at home in the laboratory,
Trish Willets and the Coventry BID team for sponsoring the event
And most importantly Jess Pinson and team at the Herbert for being our project partners and trusting us to bring our crazy idea to life.
