A Taste of Faulty Towers

Sold out for 2021!

A Taste of: Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

Straight from London’s West End via the legendary Sydney Opera House, this international sensation is now coming to the Spa Valley Railway on 28th August and 25th September! Officially the world’s most sought after tribute to the BBC sitcom, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is simply unmissable – and ‘outrageously funny’ (BroadwayBaby)!

Arrive at Tunbridge Wells West for either an 18:00 or 18:20 start in our Engine Shed (see your tickets) prior to boarding our dining train for two return trips to Eridge, hauled by steam and heritage diesel. Become part of the action as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up mayhem on a plate alongside a 3-course meal and two hours of non-stop laughter. Expect nothing short of guaranteed fun and a brilliant night out as you climb inside the BBC's iconic TV show and experience it from the inside out… With over 70% improvised, this is the completely immersive and highly interactive comedy spectacular where anything can happen… and usually does!

NOTE: Saturday 28th August, we can continue to take bookings for Tables for Two on Tables of Four. When you book a ticket called Table for Two at Table of Four it will automatically block out the other two seats so you will not be sat with other persons.

Australia born in 1997, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience has been receiving critical and audience acclaim ever since. It’s appeared in 41 countries over the years, and tours constantly in Australia, Europe, Scandinavia and Asia. It also returns for extended seasons every year to Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and has an ongoing residency in London’s West End. And having recently sold its millionth ticket, it’s clear that this is the most successful interactive comedy show of its kind.

The cast for the Spa Valley Railway features Sybil, Basil and Manuel.

Notes:
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is an affectionate homage to Fawlty Towers, the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth; their original TV scripts are not used in Faulty Towers The Dining Experience. Faulty Towers The Dining Experience uses its own original script and format.
