Pasta Evangelists celebrate Pride 2021 with Pasta & Drag Pop-Ups, drag performances, rainbow pasta, and unlimited Prosecco. Most importantly, 100% of proceeds go to LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall.
This September, fresh pasta delivery specialists – Pasta Evangelists – are taking their renowned in person masterclasses to new heights with their first #PrideInPasta Pop-Ups.
In honour of the weekend of Pride In London, and in lieu of the parade on Thursday 9th – Saturday 11th September, the events will bring a touch of Italian sparkle to Pride celebrations still going ahead in the capital.
Pasta Evangelists’ very own Queen of Pasta (or Head Sfoglina) Roberta d’Elia will co-host the masterclasses alongside a selection of London’s most fabulous Drag Artists, including Herr and Ophelia Love. After Prosecco aperitivo on arrival with Roberta, an antipasti spread and a generous welcome drink, the pasta-making party will kick into action, with two hours of rainbow revelry learning the art of making two rainbow-coloured pasta shapes from scratch and a traditional pasta filling. There will be exclusive Drag Artist performances throughout the session, an ‘Italian Disco’ soundtrack, and – naturally – plentiful Prosecco to keep hydrated in style.
Tickets cost £50-£65 per person, for a maximum of 30 people per class, taking place in the following
-9th September, 6pm-9pm at Carousel (Soho)
-10th September, 6pm-9pm at Carousel (Soho)
-11th September, 1pm-3.30pm at Bunga Bunga (Battersea)
Pasta Evangelists’ signature pasta-by-post service will also be celebrating #PrideInPasta, by offering
brand new rainbow dishes available for orders nationwide.
All profits from ticket sales will be donated to Stonewall, the LGBTQ+ charity fighting for the
freedom, equity and potential of “lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) people
