DATE NIGHT: MODIGLIANI
AND A HAPPY MEAL
AT THE TATE MODERN

WHAT

The Modigliani exhibition at the Tate Modern gallery followed by dinner in the Pure Filth pop-up

PRICE

Tickets for the Modigliani exhibition are £17.70 and £35 with a Happy Meal

WHY

This is the largest collection of Modigliani’s work ever shown in the UK – with 100 paintings, 40 of which have never been seen on these shores before. There’s a portrait of Pablo Picasso and a collection of 12 nudes that prompted police action for indecency when they went on display in 1917. If you can, try to book in advance for tickets to the seven-minute virtual reality show which transports you back to Modigliani’s studio. Then, when you have feasted on all of that wonderful art, you can be even more virtuous with some healthy fast food in the new Pure Filth pop up. Created by nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson and chef Gizzi Erskine, you can try their signature blackbean burger in a beetroot bun with sweet potato fries – each meal gives you seven of your now ten-a-day. And to mark the launch Rosemary’s husband, artist Jake Chapman, has designed Unhappy meal boxes for the first 100 customers to collect.

ON THE MENU

Why not try one of the Pure Filth saintly milkshakes: strawberry (with acai), banana (and almond butter) or salted chocolate (and cacao) all made with Booja Booja vegan dairy-free ice cream.

WHERE

Tate Modern Bankside London SE1 9TG. Near to Southwark, Blackfiars or St Paul’s tube.

WHEN

Modigliani is on until April 2.

HOW ROMANTIC?

If you find yourself only talking about the children, this will definitely give you something new to discuss (even if it’s just what the children eat!)

The Independent says:

“So many exhibitions are far too noisy, far too cluttered, far too busy with fatuous documentation, far too heavy with information when what you crave above all things else is a quiet opportunity to look at works of arts. Not so this one.”
