Tesco is hosting a Christmas dinner like no other, taking guests on an immersive culinary journey through the past 100 years of festive celebrations. 

Starting in 1919, the year Tesco founder, Jack Cohen, set up his Hackney market stall, diners will travel through time, getting a taste of Christmases past, present and future through dishes all made using the festive food selection available at Tesco this Christmas. Diners will be served up a century’s worth of Christmas food and drink in one decadent, decade-hopping menu - through the Art Deco era, the swinging sixties, to the present day and beyond.

Held in partnership with renowned ‘dining adventurers’, Flavourology, diners will enjoy an 11-course tasting menu that celebrates key moments in time and iconic Christmas dishes of past decades. The feasting menu was conceptualised by food historian, Tasha Marks, and reimagined for present-day diners by Tesco and Flavourology chefs.

Guests will enter the venue, a former 1900s police station in Covent Garden, and receive a welcome drink inspired by the era to sip on as they journey back in time at the ‘Tesco Feast of the Century.’ Once seated, diners will then travel through each decade - just like Joel, the delivery driver in this year’s Tesco Christmas advert - via a heady mix of swirling projections, music and light, guided by time-travelling hosts. Each new course will signify the passing of time, and as each one is served, the environment the diners are in will change, giving guests a truly immersive experience.

The first 10 courses will reimagine what people of each decade from the past 100 years would have enjoyed around the Christmas dinner table, while the final, 11th course, will celebrate the dish of Christmas future. 

Fittingly, the feast costs £19.19 – taking inspiration from the year Tesco was founded – and all proceeds will be shared equally between charities FareShare (charity number: 1100051) and The Trussell Trust (charity number: 1110522).

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available.
