Alaskan Gold Rush

Gold, Seafood and Carousing

Many years ago, when you were but a mere twinkle in the doe-eyes of your great, great grandparents; over 100,000 men and women braved unforgiving elements and trekked to Alaska, in search of the land's recently discovered wealth of golden nuggets. As we now know, sadly many didn't make the journey.

Perhaps your great-great-rents had something else on their mind? Saucy things.

Taking Londoners back to the trying but communal days of 1899, Alaskan Gold Rush takes place at a pop-up replica of the prospector settlement town of Nome, featuring wooden huts, saloons, wagons and plenty of campfire spirit. History tells us that not all of those who embarked on the journey found the promised gold, but what they did discover however, was thousands of miles of untouched coastline and some of the best darn seafood the world has to offer.

So not all bad?

In collaboration with Visit Alaska and the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, the event is hosted by the ever-creative Shuttlecock Inc, who after a string of sell-out immersive pop-up events (including Dine Mile High and Rumble at the Deli) are promising another round of gorgeous food, quirky entertainment and all encompassing escapism from the whiny inconveniences of today's world.

Drinking, gambling and singing is wholly encouraged, as is complete engrossment in the much coveted ferret racing; a traditional entertainment activity of the time. You'll hear the incredible stories of the people of Nome, enjoy a sit down feast of the freshest Alaskan seafood money can buy, and then to top it all off, dance your tired little socks off well into the night.

Who needs golden nuggets.

The Alaskan Gold Rush is taking place at Pimlico Gardens on 21st June. Day and night tickets are available. Kids go free in the day and the evening is over 18s only. Click below for ticket details, menus and further info.
