Faulty Towers Dining Experience

Friday 22nd March 2019 - Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a 3-course meal.

This globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Edinburgh Fringe and Sydney Opera House. It returns to Glen Yr Afon House Hotel on Friday 22nd March 2019, but be warned: it will sell out here too, so early booking is essential. Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a 3-course meal along with plenty of laughs and audience participation in this 5-star immersive show –a show that’s never the same twice, because it’s 70% improvised.

It’s great for comedy fans, theatre fans, or anyone who just fancies going out for an unforgettable meal and a good time. This true blend of ingenious comedy and unique theatrical script is a multi-sensory treat where chaos reigns right from the start.

Born in Brisbane in April 1997, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a worldwide hit, appearing in around 20 countries a year. Highlights of 2018 include a string of return visits to Fringe Festivals in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Edinburgh, and tours in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. With an ongoing residency, too, in the heart of London’s theatre land, it’s clear that Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is the most successful interactive comedy show of its kind. Ten teams of cast now tour the world virtually non-stop.

(Confirmation required: Full payment of £51.00 per person)

On Thursday 29th August 2019 we have pleasure in inviting you to a very special coach trip which will give you the opportunity to explore what it is really like behind the scenes of “The Real Downton Abbey”.

The success of Downton Abbey took everyone by surprise from the first nervous apprehension whether anyone would like the first episode or stay with it for the second or third… the series has become a phenomenon with appreciative viewers all around the world. Tickets would include access to Highclere’s beautiful castle and grounds which are visited by many thousands of visitors every year. There may also be the opportunity on the day for individuals to upgrade to the Egyptian Exhibition on the day if they wish at an additional cost.

You will also have the opportunity to visit the Castle Gift Shop which stocks a wide selection of gifts.

Christmas 2019 events - coming soon

Christmas is a time to catch up with family and friends or get together socially with work colleagues.

If you’re already starting to think about Christmas 2019 then we are almost all set and ready to help you plan that get-together. Our comfortable surroundings, hearty festive menus and welcoming team create the perfect setting for a quiet, relaxing meal or take part in one of our Christmas Party Nights.

Our festive Christmas evening dining  (Mistletoe Menu) provides a plentiful festive meal with all the trimmings in the run-up to Christmas and is most suited to those dining in the evening. Should you require lunchtime Christmas dining, our Holly Menu would be more suitable. Christmas evening dinner can be seved in our Library, Dining Room and Restaurant or in the spacious Ballroom if you are arranging a larger Christmas gathering or attending one of our Christmas party events. We are closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day to allow our team to spend quality time with family after a very busy few weeks leading up to Christmas.

Festive Afternoon Tea an alternative option but this is only offered on set days ion the lead up to Christmas. Both our Festive Tea and Family Lunch include plenty of seasonal entertainment to keep you occupied while you enjoy our sumptuous array of lovingly prepared dishes or sweet delights. 

We will soon have another full Christmas Calendar for 2019 and hope to see you at one (or more) of our carefully selected dining experiences or evenings of Christmas Party entertainment.
