Nocturne Music Festival
What: Nocturne Music Festival | Where: Blenheim Palace | When: June 2023
Kalm Kitchen were delighted to cater for VIP guests at the Nocturne Music Festival this summer. Held at Blenheim Palace, Nocturne is a unique music and dining experience that immerses guests in the world-famous surroundings of Sir Winston Churchill’s birthplace.
Attendees of the four evening spectaculars were treated to a drinks reception, delicious food and a prime seat at performances. Artists including Lionel Richie, Gregory Porter and Emeli Sandé headed the line-up.
The evening began with guests gathering in the Great Court, where we served up arrival drinks of Prosecco, Pear Collins, bottled beer and sparkling elderflower. Proceedings then moved onto the magnificent Long Library, which was the ideal place to set the scene for such a special evening. We dressed the tables with Chalk Urbane tablecloths alongside vintage green hemstitch napkins. A modern and stylish way to showcase the iconic surroundings.
Music & dining
Pre-laid starters paved the way for a choice of either a meat or plant-based menu, which we rotated between the evenings for anyone lucky enough to attend more than once. Highlights of the menu were treacle and soy cured salmon with a celeriac remoulade and a balsamic glazed beef short rib. The plant-based menu included a cauliflower panna cotta and summer squash arancini. For dessert, a crowd-pleasing toffee apple cheesecake likewise went down a treat!
After the show, guests enjoyed post-concert drinks in the Saloon – a fine setting to wrap up a spectacular evening. All-in-all this was an unforgettable dining experience in exceptionally grand surroundings. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!
