Guests at an exclusive fundraising event on 2 October 2019 will wear sight loss ‘simulation specs’ to experience what it’s like being blind or partially sighted, raising money for Northamptonshire’s sight support charity, NAB.


“Dining in the Dark”, which is being held at The Lanes Restaurant in Northampton College, is a three-course fine dining experience with a twist – diners won’t be able to see very well. Christian Day, ex-Northampton Saints Rugby legend will give an after-dinner talk followed by a charity auction to raise even more money for sight loss.


The College’s catering students are also being set a challenge – to design an ‘Amuse Bouche’ especially for people with visual impairment so concentrating on the other senses – the winner will be served at the “Dining in the Dark” dinner.
