About Feast with Strangers

Imagine going for dinner with a total stranger. It could almost be a blind date but romancing isn't on the cards. The focus of the experience is much more rare: meaningful conversation born from a menu of carefully curated questions.

Conversation meals are a concept developed by the historian Theodore Zeldin. They seek to encourage meaningful exchange between strangers, opening up portals into otherwise distant worlds.

They have been described as "a radical way to gain insight into other people's lives." Over an honest meal and a menu of thoughtful conversation starters, two newly-introduced diners get to know each other - side-stepping small talk and niceties and heading straight for the gritty stuff.


This is for people who are starved of conversation which is not just superficial chat, or gossip, or a painless way of passing the time, or professional shop talk. If you are interested in getting to know how other people see the world and in exchanging ideas about what is most important to others as well as yourself, Feast of Strangers awaits you.

What's the story behind Feast with Strangers?

First started 3 years ago by Oxford Historian Theodore Zeldin who celebrated his 65th birthday by bringing a bunch of strangers together for a meal, it has been done in multiple cities around the world and we hope to bring it to Singapore for the very first time, to encourage more Singaporeans & friends, to put down our phones and connect genuinely with someone else.


So, what is included in the ticket?

Your main course will be included in the ticket. The food is being prepared by the in-house kitchen at The Hanger, and they are simply delectable. Closer to the event date, you will receive a form where you can select your main for the night.


Anything else I need to know before attending the event?

Due to the nature of the event, if you are unable to attend the event after purchasing your ticket, please let us know 3 days in advance so that we have time to find a replacement. This is to ensure that every attendee will have a dinner buddy for that night.

By signing up, you are committing to stay for 1.5hr for dinner and conversations.

Other than that, just come in with a curious mind and an open heart at 7pm. We look forward to hosting you at the first ever Feast with Strangers in Singapore!

Cheers,
Shilpa & Vincent
