Producer Jared Harford said: “We’re thrilled beyond belief to be extending our London run, taking us into our 11th year of chaos on the West End. We know people still want to go out and enjoy themselves, while being conscious of rising costs – which is why an immersive show including dinner really is the best option for anyone looking for a spectacular night out.” Devised by Alison Pollard-Mansergh, Andrew Foreman and others, the show has been touring the UK and internationally since 2008, having appeared in 41 countries to date, and employing 56 actors per season. The show has toured to over 1,000 venues, with approximately 400 shows per year on average across the UK, and has just celebrated its tenth year in London, cementing its status as London’s longest running immersive experience. The producers also plan to open the show in a major UK city - which they will announce next month.

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience celebrates 25 years of shambolic service
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience, the critically acclaimed international immersive dining show will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2022. A loving tribute to the BBC’s classic TV series, the show has been seen by over a million people worldwide since the very first show at the Ridges Hotel in Brisbane on 24 April 1997. Devised by Alison Pollard-Mansergh, Andrew Foreman and others, the show has been touring the UK and internationally since 2008, having appeared in 41 countries to date, and employing 56 actors per season. The show has toured to over 1000 venues, with approximately 400 shows per year on average across the UK, and has just celebrated its tenth year in London, cementing its status as London’s longest running immersive experience. Reflecting on the company’s success, Artistic Director Alison Pollard-Mansergh – the show’s original ‘Sybil’ says: “It's hard to believe that what started as a 6-month venture has now reached all these milestones. Twenty five years of working with incredibly talented performers to pay homage to one of the greatest TV comedies of all time and giving people an opportunity to escape and laugh ... what an absolute joy.” Producer Jared Harford said, “After 25 years entertaining audiences, including Royalty and some of the original Fawlty Towers cast, we can’t wait to see what the future holds. When the pandemic first hit, we thought it may be the end, but we have managed to survive through the sheer determination of our staff and audience. For an Australian company, it is hard to believe just how abandoned the arts industry has been by our government. An industry that is worth more, and employs more than coal – we’re proud to call ourselves one of the great Australian exports, and hope that one day the government will value us that way as well. As we mark our 25th year, we also mark our 10th year of our residency on London’s West End – a feat cementing us as the longest running immersive experience on the West End. We look forward to celebrating this year with our fans from all around the world, and soon will be announcing a competition to bring you to us…” Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a tribute to Fawlty Towers, the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth.
