We’ve got something special brewing for Museums at Night!
On May 18, step back in time to the Palace of old, as we celebrate the pastimes of the Victorian era for Museums at Night 2017. With live music from folk legends The Phoenix Collective, tastings from local craft brewery Portobello Brewing Co and period entertainment through our historic spaces. For one night only, Portobello Brewing Co is creating a unique Fulham Palace beer!
Portobello Brewing Company
As there was, for a long time, a brewery present as part of the Palace estate, local craft brewery Portobello Brewing Co, founded in December 2012 by beer industry veteran Rob Jenkins and head brewer Farooq Khalid, bring a flavour of the past to this fantastic event. They will be offering tastings of their core range of beers – London Pilsner, Westway Pale Ale, Market Porter & Stiff Lip – to guests, and they’re also brewing up something special which will be available to buy on draft at the main bar!
The Phoenix Collective
The Phoenix Collective are a folk trio that put a contemporary spin on Irish traditional music. The three members were part of the original West End cast of ‘Once’ and play a multitude of instruments as well as lending their voices to three part harmony arrangements of many Irish classics. From ballads to raucous jigs and reels, The Phoenix Collective have something for all tastes and will be bringing a little Victorian flavour to their repetoire exclusively for Fulham Palace.
