Faulty Towers The Original Dining Experience

Tuesday, 10 September, 19:00

Back, by popular demand: As if May’s night of mayhem and madness wasn’t enough, we’ve invited Basil, Sybil and Manuel back for one more night of Faulty Towers franticness in September.

Join the crew for a 2-hour West End Production show while enjoying a 3-course meal, dutifully served by Basil’s team of merry men and women. Running for over 7 years on the West End, this dining experience has been entertaining audiences all over the world.

We cannot guarantee that your cheeks won’t hurt from too much laughter, and we can’t promise that Manuel won’t drop a serviette on your head, but what we can assure you of is an unforgettable evening filled with fun, great company, and fantastic food.

Costs are £70 per person. 50% deposit taken upon booking. Terms & Conditions apply.
