Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience
Following the success of our Faulty Towers events we are pleased to invite you to their newest show – ONLY FOOLS THE (CUSHTY) DINING EXPERIENCE on Saturday 29th September 2018! The show is brought to you by the people behind the worldwide smash hit, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.
This fully immersive show transports audiences to The Nags Head to meet the pride of Peckham in a night of wheeling, dealing and eating. The fun starts from the moment you join the Trotters and their friends for a knees-up. Meanwhile, they try to drum up some cash and make a cheeky saving on the side. But why is the pub closed on the busiest night of the week? There’s money to be made and debts to be paid!
A t’riffic night out with some cushty pub grub, this is a night you won’t forget – and you’d be a plonker to miss it!
Brilliantly funny, Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience is a wholly original immersive theatre show created in loving tribute to the BBC’s Only Fools & Horses TV series. All tickets include a 3-course meal.
Guests are requested to arrive at 7.30 p.m. and will be seated at 8.00 p.m. The bars will be open from 7.00 p.m.
