Saturday 29th March
Leeds City Centre, Secret location
New venue, New menu, New party
Beatfood is a new project bringing together food and music in unusual spaces. Founded last year by Jane and Ralph Lawson in their hometown of Leeds, the first events in March, May and December 2013 proved that people were keen to try something different.
Working with great Yorkshire chefs cooking fresh local produce, Beatfood began as an alternative concept in dining where the night doesn’t end with desert. People can hangout, eat a delicious 3 course dinner, dance and drink once the plates have been cleared away. Music is worked together with the food by resident DJs Ralph Lawson and Tristan Da Cunha, who know how to create the perfect sound-track for the entire night.
Beatfood returns in March and takes over its most ambitious venue yet for one night only. Although the format is the same, the big change is that we’re working with 2020Vision to host the party as part of the label’s 20th anniversary Content Tour. To celebrate this big event 2020 are bringing an all-star DJ line up featuring, Greg Wilson, Crazy P (DJ set), Ralph Lawson, Tristan Da Cunha & Kag Katumba.
A special feature of the night will be a visual presentation of Greg’s Reels Of Steel film about the early years of Electro Funk, which will be shown on 3D cubes designed exclusively for 2020 Vision by Loco Vision.
In the main room Jane Lawson is in charge of décor and she creates a new look for each event, thinking about the seasons and the demands of the space. The design of the room is an essential part of Beatfood, helping to create the right atmosphere for people to feel that they’re a part of something unique.
For their first events last year Beatfood transformed a large industrial rooftop studio in Munro House into a restaurant, bar and loft party with chef Tom Van Zeller. Harrogate-based Van Zeller recently featured in The Sunday Times Top 100 restaurants of 2013.
In December, legendary Italian Salvo’s took over the restaurant delivering a fantastic 3-course dinner of antipasto misto, chicken with chorizo filling on wild mushroom risotto, finished with a mulled wine pannacotta. They’ll be in charge again in March, creating an interesting and enticing menu without the aid of a proper kitchen!
This time people can buy tickets for the full Beatfood experience including dinner and entry to the 2020 Vision label party for £37, or they can just pick up a ticket to the 2020 party at £15.
