The ‘Dining Domes’ at Chiswick House & Gardens, which were set to be a large part of their autumn programme, have been cancelled at the last minute.
Organisers Eventist Group apologised to bookers via an email from their Dining Domes Team, in which they blamed the ongoing challenges in the hospitality sector – including staff shortages and supply chain issues.
The statement reads:
‘We are sorry to inform you that we have had to reluctantly take the decision to postpone our pop-up Dining Domes at Chiswick House. This is unfortunately due to the huge current challenges facing the hospitality industry in terms of staff shortages, supply chain issues and rapid inflation in staff rates and food costs.
‘We sincerely hope to have another opportunity to welcome you at this event in the future but in the meantime, we will cancel your reservation and issue a full refund which you will receive within the next 10 days.
The Dining Domes were due to open Friday – Sunday from 15 October – 7 November. Each Dome can seat up to eight guests for brunch, lunch and dinner and they have been a a great success at some of London’s top venues including Somerset House and Syon House.
Xanthe Arvanitakis, Director of Chiswick House and Gardens told The Chiswick Calendar:
“We’re disappointed not to be hosting the Dining Domes this autumn but we understand the challenges that the Eventist Group, along with much of the hospitality industry, are facing at the moment. We hope that we will be able to welcome the Dining Domes to Chiswick in 2022.”
