Bold Street favourite Leaf is set to host a unique dining experience which will see guests tucking in to their meals while blindfolded.

Dining in the Dark is operating over various dates in June - but tickets are selling fast.

From May 17, we are, provisionally, due to reach Step 3 of the Government's roadmap out of lockdown, which eases the limits on seeing family and friends and allows indoor dining and drinking to resume.

At this stage, most legal restrictions on meeting others outdoors will also be lifted, although gatherings of over 30 people will remain illegal.

Dining in the Dark will see ticket holders offered a welcome drink of prosecco or beer before enjoying a surprise menu.

Located at popular tea house Leaf on Bold Street, the event aims to cater to all dietary requirements while still providing guests with something unique.

Eminent psychologists have been advocating dining in the dark as the ultimate taste experience for many years.

Studies show 80% of people eat with their eyes and with that sense eliminated, the theory is that the other senses — namely taste and smell — take over to elevate your meal to a whole new level.

The darkened room will be lit by candlelight with guests also donning blindfolds to heighten the experience.

It is hoped that focusing on taste and smell alone will offer a truly enlightening evening.
