A blindfolded dinner event is set to offer Dundonians a “unique sensory experience”.
Organised by charity North East Sensory Services (NESS), Dine in the Dark will see participants attempt to tuck into a three-course meal at a restaurant.
The event is designed to raise awareness of sensory loss and give people the chance to understand everyday difficulties those affected face.
To be held at the Invercarse Hotel next month, diners at the event will be blindfolded before the first two courses and will then discuss their experience over dessert.
Joan Kennedy, from NESS, said that, from the reaction of people at previous events, the experience is something that really surprises participants.
She said: “I think it really is something that can blow people’s minds. We’ve had people in our previous dinners in Aberdeen and Moray who have been really quite shocked.
“Those who have tried it sometimes think it will be quite easy but really struggle with it. It is far more difficult than you might imagine.
“We always have a session afterwards where everyone can talk about what it was like.
“It really is a fantastic experience.”
Although similar events have been held recently in other areas of Scotland, this is the first time in four years it has been held in Dundee.
The dinner raises funds for the charity as well as giving people an opportunity to learn what sensory impairment is like.
Taking place on August 25, the experience costs £30 with bookings at nesensoryservices.org.
