Two Degrees: Crayfish Bob’s

6.30pm. £5

Crayfish Bob’s is a pop-up café serving American Signal Crayfish from the River Thames. This locally sourced delicacy is caught by Crayfish Bob himself and served from our al fresco crayfish shack in the grounds of Toynbee Studios. Book a table, enjoy an extraordinary dining experience and help eradicate this invasive species which has already almost wiped out the UK’s native white-clawed crayfish, as well as destroying other aquatic life.

Produced in association with The Mayor's Thames Festival.

Crayfish Bob’s is a collaboration between Bob Ring (Crayfish Bob), designer Lizzie Clachan, food designers Blanch and Shock and artist Clare Patey.

Clare Patey is an artist and curator. Her work is participatory, interdisciplinary and site specific and explores environmental issues, food, conversation, celebration and community. She has been commissioned by LIFT, Friends of the Earth, The Countryside Commission, Channel 4 (winner of RTS award for Human Footprint), The South Bank Centre, Home Live Art, The New Economics Foundation, The National Theatre and The Art Museum, Phoenix. She was the creator of the Museum Of on the South Bank, co-founded The Ministry of Trying to Do Something About It and annually curates Feast on the Bridge for the Thames Festival.
