Mimetic Festival @ The Vaults 17-28 November.
Mimetic is a pop up festival of cabaret, theatre and alternative performance. We're installing five stages into the Vaults - three theatre spaces, one cabaret bar and a main 500 capacity bar. We'll be hosting 120 performances and at a conservative 50% ticket sales we'll be looking at 6,000 audience over the two weeks with a further 500 artists, staff and volunteers.
We would like to offer our annex space (100 capacity) off the main bar (500 capacity) to an enthusiastic team to set up a pop up kitchen to serve food throughout the festival - offering a culinary experience that's just as exciting as the performances we've programmed. We'd need you to be open during the performance days of the festival (Tuesday - Saturday) between 5:30pm and 9:30pm. Though you are welcome to stay open later - the first show each night will start at around 6pm and final show will finish at 11pm each night.
We provide electricity and there is running water available within the building as well as a delivery bay. The space is equipped with an extractor fan, but no catering equipment so this would need to be factored into your plans. If you are interested in taking part we ask you to submit an expression of interest including an overview of what you would be interesting in serving, examples of your previous experience in running similar set-ups, the amount you'd be happy to pay the festival to rent the pitch, and a % discount you'd be willing to offer festival staff and artists.
If you think you're as passionate about food as we are about amazing performance then we want to hear from you!
