World-renowned food artists Bompas & Parr present The Waft That Woos, a mirror labyrinth navigable by nose!

Commissioned by the RSC this enchanting installation is inspired by The Merry Wives of Windsor and Shakespearean farce. Visitors explore the mysterious mirror maze, following the scent of a specially-concocted love potion.

Bompas & Parr design spectacular culinary experiences on an architectural scale. The duo were named by the Independent as 'one of the 15 people who will define the future of arts in Britain'. Past clients and exhibitions include Barbican Art Gallery, Disney, ICA, London Design Festival, Selfridges, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Serpentine Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum and Wellcome Collection.
