Alongside the standard food, drink and shelter, shopping and internet access are probably up there when it comes to the modern first-world human needs. Good news, then – the National Theatre are offering the lot. To continue its 50th anniversary celebrations, the theatre has launched new pop-up ‘Shopping and E*ting’, which you can visit from now until January 12 at the former Propstore space. Paying tribute to British playwright Mark Ravenhill’s ‘Shopping and F***ing’, the new pop-up offers a unique theatrical experience for all who enter its doors.
Head inside and browse an eclectic mix of products including limited-edition prints by iconic designers like Michael Craig-Martin, James Reid, Paula Scher and David Carson, as well as a range of witty products inspired by Shakespearean tragedies. Once you’re done with the shopping bit, it’s time to eat. Queue up at the 1950s Citroen Van where you can get grub including goose pies, Fammkuchen (literally means ‘flame cake’, but it’s kind of like a posh pizza) and pannetone bread and butter pudding.
