Mull recreated in London’s east end

Supermarket Lidl, which buys its mussels from Mull, is creating an pop-up interactive event bringing a taste of Mull  in east London next week-end  – September 15-18.

It’s paying homage to the sustainable, Scottish rope-grown mussels it buys from Mull, currently in season until March.  The event – Mussel Beach – is set to recreate Mull’s stunning scenery, bringing Loch Spelve to Brick Lane’s Old Trewman Brewery.

Experimental chefs will be creating recipes for visitors to the free event. And guests will be able to gaze at Mull’s starry night skies, thanks to Kinect technology, while suspended on swings made from mussel ropes.  Visitors can also walk across a jetty to view Lidl’s lake, with water sourced directly from the Loch itself.
