Faulty Towers The Dining Experience at Country Place Hotel


The Faulty Towers The Dining Experience offers a fabulous weekend getaway including dinner, show, bed and breakfast. The fun starts as the audience waits to be seated and then hurtles along for two hours of fully immersive, highly improvised comedy theatre. Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up some madcap mayhem and a three-course meal with the audience playing the part of their restaurant diners.

Chaos in the dining room. Enter the world of the snobbish, manic Basil, his domineering wife Sybil and their hopelessly language-challenged waiter, Manuel.

Be one of the steady stream of bemused guests trying to make Manuel understand what it is you want. Ask for an ice bucket and you may just be presented with a nice bucket. A simple procedure like opening a bottle of wine can become a huge drama, and maybe during all this you might get some service, Faulty style of course.
