Pop-up dining specialist The Art of Dining has revealed a new experience for 2015, called Gone Camping - a five-course, summer camping-themed pop-up dining experience.

The ticketed event, which will take place between 7 and 22 January at The Pickle Factory in east London, will combine theatre, food and set design, by chef Ellen Parr and designer Alice Hodge.

The Art of Dining said Gone Camping will "encapsulate the fun, experimental and sometimes charcoal-y flavours of campsite cooking". Dishes will include a posh Pot Noodle, a Thai twist on the campfire barbecue and a Moroccan breakfast dish with eggs and flatbread.

Guests will also be able to boil up water in a billy can, cook and share food with fellow diners, whittle sticks for toasting marshmallows, listen to ghost stories and join in a sing-song around a blazing campfire.

Designer Hodge will transform the venue into a campsite setting from the English countryside, featuring billowing canvas, flickering lamplight, nature and the cry of seagulls.
