Magnetic Storm brings dinner in the dark to life
for the Nkosinathi Foundation 

DARK - Dare to Dine Differently in the Dark is a unique experience for Nkosinathi Foundation, designed to raise funds and bring awareness around the non profit organisation’s work with blind and partially sighted people. 

On the night of November 29th, diners will be submerged in a dining experience like never before. Plunged into darkness, guests will indulge in a unique dining  experience, where guests will embark on a tantalising journey of the senses, all but one, whilst enjoying a three course meal and wine pairing. 

Briefed to add atmosphere and provide technical expertise, Magnetic Storm is providing lighting to create a strong visual impact upon guests arrival, where colour will be strategically used to light up walls.  On the challenge a dark event poses, Magnetic Storm Creative Services Head David Limbert said: “The room will be unlit for most of the event to give guests an idea of what it’s like to be blind and rely on their other senses. However, when the guests arrive, they will enter a dimmed area where colour will be used to create an atmosphere for what is about to be experienced before they step into darkness.” 

Sponsoring its services for the event, Nkosinathi Foundation has been one of the charities Magnetic Storm has supported in 2017, and is proud to be able to provide its services for such a unique experience and connect people to a disability and create a better understanding and awareness.
