The Electric Sledge: an exciting new pop-up in Paddington Basin
This December, 60-seater Regent’s Canal boat, the Electric Barge transforms itself into the Electric Sledge: an exciting new pop-up floating venue moored at Merchant Square in Paddington Basin.
The Electric Sledge will be an intimate venue for Christmas lunches and dinners for private and corporate parties between the 3rd and 21st of December. Braai specialists, Bring & Braai, have created a menu that puts a South African twist on the classic Christmas fare. The food – including Chakalaka Turkey, Braaied Butternut and piping-hot Potjiekos – will be cooked on traditional open wood fires on the towpath alongside the barge, providing a unique winter spectacle for guests and passers-by.
At lunchtimes, the Electric Sledge will also be serving – street-food style – Turkey and Sage Boerewors Rolls, with smoked caramelised braai onions. Operated by the charity Beauchamp Lodge Settlement, The Electric Barge offers private hire trips, throughout the year, to independent and corporate guests to raise money for learning activities on its Floating Classroom – providing opportunities for local children to come aboard to learn about history, science, nature and the world around them.
