ISLANDERS are being invited to strip off at the Castle Inn, Newport, and have dinner fully naked.

Dine Naked is an organisation hosting naked dining events in Bristol, but now it is coming to the Isle of Wight.

The three-course naked banquet is taking place in the function room at the Castle Inn on Saturday, April 20 at 7.30pm.

A spokesperson for the event said: "All Dine Naked events involve non-sexual nudity, and are only for people aged 18+.

"Being naked in a safe, friendly environment can be a really positive, life-affirming experience.

"The only people who'll see you will be other naked diners and the restaurant staff.

"The windows will be curtained, so nobody will be able to see in.

"Wear sandals, slippers or flip flops — but the point of Dine Naked is to be naked, so please don't wear anything else.

"Arrive normally dressed. We'll welcome you and explain things, then you can find a seat and get undressed."

Tickets cost £23 and include food but not drinks.

One of the owners of the Castle Inn, Liam White said: "We did not realise the event was going to be advertised publicly but we are embracing the event."

Mr White said the pub was contacted by a group of mainland nudists, who wanted to use the event to connect with the Isle of Wight nudist community.

He said: "We saw no problem with that. We have spoken with the organisers and have put measures in place to ensure that diners privacy is taken care of and there is not exposure to any of the public."

The pub will remain open as normal, while the event takes place in the function room: "We have hired extra toilets so people don't have to leave the room."
