Poplar Union are proud to host Gail Egbeson’s acclaimed theatre show, Jollof Court, as part of our Black History month digital programme, with the fun twist of being able to enjoy your very own Joloff Rice whilst watching the show!

What to expect

Jollof Court is a digital theatre dining experience told through the lens of a Nigerian Bride-to-be and her Ghanian fiancé who find themselves unable to agree on the type of Jollof rice that should be served at their wedding. After numerous failed deliberations between family and friends, the couple decide to take this disagreement to court as a final resort to save their union.

The performance will premier on our YouTube channel at 7pm. You will receive a private link to access the film the day before the show.

Jollof Delivery!

Help Judge Matthews in the head to head battle as he attempts to find which country has the best Jollof Rice by ordering your own serving of the dish!

Book the ‘Jollof Delivery‘ ticket option and get Joloff delivered straight to your door just before the show begins!

Each food delivery will contain:
1 Ghanaian Jollof shot
