Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience

The world’s longest running and most successful tribute to the BBC’s iconic sitcom is back for its 13th Edinburgh Fringe. This one-of-a-kind original is internationally recognised as ‘outrageously funny’ (BroadwayBaby) and highly acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.

Ready to bring a healthy dose of mayhem back to the Fringe, Basil, Sybil and Manuel promise to serve up non-stop hilarity and a 3-course meal. Fully immersive, highly interactive and completely original, this is the top-flight show where anything can happen and usually does. With two hours of comedy, three courses of food and five-star reviews, you can expect chaos, laughs, and a brilliant night out – or lunchtime!

  • ‘Best Completely Indestructible Show Award’ The Advertiser, Adelaide Fringe 
  • ‘Laughs galore!’ The Holiday and Travel Magazine, Sydney Opera House
  • ‘Hilarious…catch it before it leaves’ Best of Toronto, Sony Centre for the Performing Arts

With 12 stand-out teams of actors and tours around the world, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience has gained international reputation. This iconic show was born in 1997, meaning it’ll be 23 when it arrives at Fringe 2019! Other huge highlights of 2019 include Fringe Festivals in Adelaide and Melbourne; tours across entire continents like Europe, Scandinavia, Asia and Australia; and an ongoing residency in London’s West End.
