Creative Taste, the heritage and visitor attractions division of caterer Creativevents, has won a six-year £3.8m contract to provide catering services at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London.
The venue claims to be the first public art gallery in England and is open for conferences and event hire.
The new contract will see Creative Taste operating Dulwich Picture Gallery Café together with hospitality for events in the Gallery and its gardens.
Adrian Willson, Creative Taste Managing Director, said: “This new client is a fantastic opportunity for Creative Taste. We launched a dedicated website at the beginning of the year, (creativetaste.co.uk) and this is our first contract win under the new branding and subsequent partnership with MITIE Group”.
New plans for Dulwich Picture Gallery include use of the outside space for a ‘pop up’ Garden Café during the summer months. Creative Taste also wants to work more closely with the Gallery’s Friends, the local community and develop the weddings, corporate and social occasions business.
Willson says menus will feature freshly cooked dishes with seasonal ingredients working with many local suppliers, including East Dulwich Naturally and the Paul Rhodes bakery.
“As well as wanting Dulwich Picture Gallery to be the natural choice for hosting events, we want the Café to be at the heart of the community and aim to make it the destination of choice locally where we will entice and delight all our customers,” Willson added.
