British Invasion: An English Dinner Party

February 15
6 to 9 P.M.

Prices vary | Registration required

Calling all anglophiles! Do you fancy a pint? Round up some mates, dress in your British best, and join us at the Museum for a pub crawl-style evening with a classy spin. Guests will enjoy live music with the Beatles tribute band Liverpool Live (complete with wardrobe changes, authentic instruments, and a fun range of songs from across the Beatles playlist), a chance to 'meet' some royalty (along with other photo ops and experiences), a selection of favorite English beers plus our very own Avant Gardener by Bold City Brewery, wines, and some posh spins on classic pub cuisine! This jolly good evening will support the reconstruction of the English Gardens. RSVP by February 8. 

A sampling of the menu includes:

  • Scotch Eggs
  • Carved Steamship Round
  • Crispy Snapper Fillets with House Chips
  • Pub-style Chicken Curry


Clutch your pearls and fill your glasses, the Cummer Museum is throwing a dinner party! This avant-garde series of dinners will inspire your palate and spark your creative energies, all while supporting the reconstruction of the historic Cummer Gardens. 

The Cummers were known to be legendary hosts. Here is your chance to join the Museum in celebration of the culture and history of the places that inspired the beautiful gardens the Cummers left for the community.

All Dinner Party guests will enjoy beer, wine, hors d’oeuvres, themed music, artful experiences, and dinner.

VIP guests will enjoy a private art tour with selections chosen to complement each event, along with a signature cocktail prior to the start of the evening, from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
