HARVEST LOTTERY – How to enter for tickets to the Studio Orta meal on 20th September 2015

On Sunday 20th September arts organisation Metal and artists Studio Orta will be hosting a simple meal for 500 in Cathedral Square, Peterborough as part of their wider Harvest Festival.

Since the year 2000 the Studio Orta have designed thought provoking ‘70×7 Meals’ that have brought thousands of people from all different horizons together, to sit down, to dine and to talk about specific issues. Each meal is site-specific and each one is accompanied with specially commissioned art works, limited edition Royal Limoges porcelain plates, hand printed table runners etc. Through the unusual settings and the beautiful art works adorning the table, the artists have transformed the daily ritual into something unique to be remembered and re-enacted forever. This Peterborough meal will be Studio Orta’s 39th meal across the world, yet their 1st outdoor meal in the UK.

Studio Orta’s artwork ‘70×7 The Meal’ draws from the ancestral ritual of dining together. Tickets to the meal are allocated by two methods:

  • ‘Harvest Ambassadors’, residents of Peterborough representing specific communities, are given tickets to give out to their communities
  • A ’Harvest Lottery’ – Metal have set aside 70 PAIRS of tickets to be given at random to people entering a ticket lottery.
