The Kenton Theatre are delighted to be hosting a recording for the long running BBC Radio 4 show, The Kitchen Cabinet on Monday 19 June.
The Kitchen Cabinet is a culinary panel programme hosted by Jay Rayner. The show is witty, fast-moving, and irreverent, but packed full of information that may well change the way you think about cooking. The audience gets the opportunity to ask questions on anything and everything to do with food and drink to a panel of experts and enjoy plenty of good-humoured conversation about cooking and eating.
Henley’s Town Manager Paul Carey originally approached producers about hosting the recording at the Town Hall having learnt that the Town Clerk and other Council officers were fans of the show. He said: “ We couldn’t make the dates work at the Town Hall, so I was pleased when the researchers turned their sights on another of our great town centre venues. The iconic Kenton Theatre is a great stage for the show.”
Kenton Theatre Manager Lottie Pheasant said, “We were delighted to receive the enquiry from the BBC. We’re always open to bringing new things to the theatre and to our audiences. Hosting the show will elevate the theatre’s profile and we hope it will bring further opportunities.”
A spokesperson for BBC said, “I found out about Kenton Theatre whilst searching for spaces in Henley-on-Thames for the upcoming recording. Upon further research of the theatre space, the location as well as its history, I thought it would be the perfect location to host The Kitchen Cabinet.”
