It’s not often that we city folk get to escape to the woodlands, but this month we may not have to roam far as a Pop Up Forest is coming to Brighton.
Cocktail masterclass Pop Up Forest arrives in King’s Road Arches for one weekend only from Fri 6 to Sun 8 Apr to offer ticketholders a unique experience involving the sights, sounds and smell of the woods.
Guests can expect to be surrounded by a projected digital forest, with live moths pupating and hatching while they create a selection of bespoke cocktails inspired by nature.
Using avant-garde techniques and instruments, along with foraged native plants, budding mixologists will be instructed on how to make a Stinging Nettle Collins (with Mamont vodka), ‘Moth to a Flame’ (with the city’s favourite spirit Tuaca), and ‘Pond Water’ (a take on a classic gin and tonic with Martin Millers gin and ‘edible tadpoles’), over 90 minutes of cocktail-fuelled fun.
The Forest can be found at Pop Up Brighton, which is by the British Airways i360 at 76-81 Kings Road Arches, Brighton BN1 2FN.
Get back into nature the fun way here.
