Our Classes

!!! Thank you for your interest in booking a Butchery Class.

Due to COVID-19 we have suspended all classes for the time being. !!!  

AN UPDATE: We are currently working on a class schedule for July and August, as well as reaching out to all participants of classes we had to cancel last year. Once we have re-booked all previously cancelled classes we will be announcing the reopening of booking for voucher holders in our newsletter and on our social channels.

We may choose to reopen booking in stages to ensure access to earlier purchased vouchers first before more recently purchased vouchers. We thank you for all your patience while we reopen for general booking.

Any vouchers with an expiration date in March 2020 or going forward will be honoured as soon as we are back up and running. 

Do sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of our homepage so you don’t miss any further announcements.

If your class was cancelled last year, you should have received an email from us by now on re-booking your class. If you have not received an email, please get in touch with Indre at butcheryclasses@thegingerpig.co.uk


A fabulous gift experience for those who would like a hands-on lesson in meat and traditional butchery skills. This is an opportunity for our guests to try their hand at light butchery and learn more about where their meat comes from, pick up a new skill and get the most from each cut. We can promise a fun and relaxed evening hosted by some of our most experienced and charming butchers. Plus, there’s a two course informal meal at the end and you get to take the substantial joint you have prepped or plentiful sausages you have made to feast on at home. Scroll down for more information on our classes.

Classes run Monday - Saturday 7-10.30pm, and Sundays 4-7.30pm at Moxon Street, and at Borough Market on Wednesday to Friday 6.30-10pm, and Saturdays 4-7.30pm. Please see our bookings calendar for accurate availability. Buy a voucher online or in any of our eight shops.

For corporate or group bookings, please call 0203 869 7804. We can accommodate  12-16 in Moxon Street and 10-12 people in Borough Market. Unfortunately we can't book out a class exclusively for less than the aforementioned numbers.

Please note - we release butchery class dates one month in advance (eg, August's dates will be released in late June). If you cannot see the date you want in the future, email us, or check back with us in a few weeks.
