Officially the world’s longest-running and most sought-after tribute to the BBC’s iconic sitcom – it’s back! Basil’s still rude, Manuel’s still confused, and Sybil’s still cracking the whip... but because the show’s highly interactive and 70% improvised, it’s never the same twice! Be served non-stop laughs and a three-course meal in this internationally acclaimed hit. ‘Glorious entertainment of the highest calibre’ ***** (Fife Today). ‘Brilliantly talented cast’ ***** (Sun). ‘Hilarious’ ***** (The Holiday and Travel Magazine, Sydney Opera House). ‘Catch it before it leaves’ ***** (Best of Toronto, Sony Centre for the Performing Arts).

I first saw this piece of interactive theatre about ten years ago it Brighton Fringe. I hadn’t experienced anything quite like it before and it was a hugely impressive combination of dinner theatre and a chance to revisit a series (well there were two made) that I had loved and...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 90 days ago

A long-running, classic show, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience seems a perfect fit for the oddity and downright insanity of the Fringe. The show begins before we enter the dining room. Basil, Sybil and Manuel treat us to a ridiculous parade of jokes that, though simple, are executed so well...

Faulty Towers – The Dining Experience is two hours of brilliant entertainment. Be prepared to be ridiculed, be prepared to be part of the slapstick action. But, above all, be prepared to be thoroughly entertained. But not a word to the dragon!

This is a three-course dinner with a difference. The meal is good, as expected of the George Hotel, but don’t go expecting a fine dining experience. Plates are thrown and food is snatched away. It’s all done for laughs and works a treat.

The Faulty Towers Dining Experience boasts that they have recently served their one millionth customer worldwide, and with an experience this hilarious, engaging and insulting, it’s not hard to see how the cult brand has become so popular.The show starts unassumingly in the swanky hotel foyer with Basil, Manuel and...
