‘Outrageously funny’ Faulty Towers dining experience returns to Kent

Fans of Faulty Towers will be delighted to know that the “world’s most sought after” tribute to the BBC sitcom is officially back in Kent this summer. The spectacular tribute act will be coming back to Spa Valley Railway in Tunbridge Wells on a steam train.

On offer is a 3-course meal and two hours of hysterical entertainment from Basil, Sybil and Manuel. Aside from a guarantee of entertainment and fun, expect an immersive and mostly improvised show where you get to experience first-hand the iconic BBC sitcom where anything could happen!

The acclaimed experience was created in 1997 and has since appeared in over 40 countries. In fact, “Faulty Towers The Dining Experience” constantly tours in a number of countries in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia as well as Australia.

The tribute also has return seasons to Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, as well as an ongoing residency in London’s West End. The dining experience, which recently sold its millionth ticket, is an homage to the TV show but uses unique scripts and its own format. The carriages will be hauled by a heritage diesel and a steam locomotive.

The experience has received a number of very positive reviews, with both What’s on Stage and The Daily Telegraph Australia giving the experience five stars and calling it ‘Fantastic!’ and ‘A two-hour eat, drink and laugh sensation’ respectively. These sentiments were also echoed by the London West End, which called it ‘Immersive theatre at its best’ and awarded it the Best of Theatre in 2019. BroadwayBaby also called the show: “Outrageously funny”.
