Faulty Towers
Do you remember that fantastic series Fawlty Towers and how it had you in fits of laughter? Let us bring Basil, Sybil and Manuel to life for you. These three characters will give you side splitting humour as they integrate your favourite moments then spice it up with their improvisation from quirky, cheeky and just plain fun conversations, add some riveting dance moves to create a show personalised for any occasion. The only thing we cannot guarantee is that you will not catch their superbug Fitsalaughter.

"We recently had the pleasure of Faulty Towers Dinner Theatre show for our company Christmas event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and many people were still talking about it weeks later. It was great the way the guests and the menu were based around the show and how the quirky events of the night fitted into the show making it a night of mayhem and laughter. Everyone was in hysterics and felt involved in the show – it was just like watching the t.v. series except we were part of it!. We would highly recommend any group wanting a fun and entertaining evening to book this show, as you certainly won’t be disappointed. Thanks again for a great evening". - Catherine Gordon on behalf of Counties Power Ltd.

Murder At Hotel Balle Balle
Murder at Hotel Balle Balle it is just a little bit ridiculous and whole lot crazy.
Imagine it is 1920 and you have the egocentric Roydon Lambsey and Francesca Lambsey (fondly called Franny) who have brought a lot of India back to England by opening their infamous Hotel Balle Balle. They have also brought with them Mercedes Bigg who worked at the extravagant Bukhara in India...and boy do they love anything Indian. The hired help is Boy Simmons who works a bit in the kitchen and does a bit of serving. He said he has worked all his life around food but something just does not seem to stack up...and we are not talking about pancakes! Everybody tries so hard but it is so difficult when Roydon is so bad tempered that nobody wants to join him in the kitchen, not even his wife who tries to hide her disappointment about her relationship behind a bottle and a good laugh. Being so deprived of affection you wonder how she really feels about Mercedes. And is Mercedes interested in reciprocating or is he trying to protect Roydon, maybe he has feelings for his old friend, in the end he falls back into his old pattern of keeping the restaurant oh so perfect.... Then there is a murder!
Come along dressed in your favourite 1920s sparkles or spats or dare yourself to embrace the Bollywood within. Do not forget your favourite murder weapon from cluedo, what you have always dreamed of using to get rid of the mother-in-law and become part of the craziness. Murder at Hotel Balle Balle, see you there...if you dare!
