Artisanal Chewing Gum Factory (and so much more)

Alas, it's too late to participate in Bompas & Parr's Artisanal Chewing Gum Factory:

Each visitor will be able to choose and combine 200 familiar and unusual flavours including iris, Hendricks Gin and tonic, curry and beer yeast. In total 40,000 flavour combinations are possible.
Truly outlandish combinations were possible. At least you can participate vicariously by watching the video below:

Coming next month is another event that sounds like great fun - - Taste O Rama at the Harley Gallery:
Coming soon to the Harley Gallery, Bompas & Parr will show Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in Welbeck Abbey's Titchfield Library. Guests will be taken on a trip through the secretive underground rooms at Welbeck before watching the film presented in Taste 'o' Rama - with spectators able to enjoy key moments of the movie with their mouths.
(Monkey brain's anyone?)
