Artistic Director Alison Pollard-Mansergh, Producer Jared Harford, and the whole team at Interactive Theatre International have announced an extension to the dining experience as well as new menus for Sunday roasts and a special festive menu.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is extending its residency in London, with tickets now available until December 2023. The show also has expansion plans in the UK, with a new residency in another major UK city to be announced next month.
When the audience become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant, pretty much anything can happen – because 70% of the show is improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated. It then hurtles along in a 2-hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a ‘70s-style 3-course meal together with a good dollop of mayhem. Expect the unexpected!
It has also been announced that guests attending on Sundays at the President Hotel can now enjoy a special Sunday roast menu option, with a three course meal including: Broccoli Super Green Soup, served with Courgette Fritters, Roasted Lemon and Oregano Half Chicken or Butternut Squash and Lentil Wellington, Roasted Potatoes, Roasted Root vegetables, and Yorkshire Pudding, with pudding choicesVanilla and White Chocolate Cheesecake, served with Chocolate Sauce or Chocolate and Coconut Tart, with Forest Berries.
Meanwhile from the 1st to the 18th December, there will be a special festive menu in place with dishes including Roasted Butternut Squash soup, Turkey Crown or Butternut Squash and Lentil Wellington with a Mushroom, Shallot, and Sage Stuffing, oven roasted Rosemary Potatoes and Root Vegetables, served with gravy, with pudding choices White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake, served with a Blueberry Coulis or Chocolate and Orange Brownie Cake, served with Chocolate Sauce.
Devised by Alison Pollard-Mansergh, Andrew Foreman and others, the show has been touring the UK and internationally since 2008, having appeared in 41 countries to date, and employing 56 actors per season. The show has toured to over 1000 venues, with approximately 400 shows per year on average across the UK, and has just celebrated its tenth year in London, cementing its status as London’s longest running immersive experience.
Producer Jared Harford said, “We’re thrilled beyond belief to be extending our London run, taking us into our 11th year of chaos on the West End. We know people still want to go out and enjoy themselves, while being conscious of rising costs – which is why an immersive show including dinner really is the best option for anyone looking for a spectacular night out.”
