London Theatre and Meal Packages
By the interval of a London show I am generally starving. It’s my own fault. Instead of leaving enough time to get to the theatre and find a nearby restaurant that I like the look of, I’ve only got the time to grab a quick bevvie before dashing in to find my seat where I devour a packet of Malteesers much to the disgust of my immediate neighbours!
So a word from the one who has been there: give yourself enough time to explore the immediate area to the theatre you are at and you are bound to find something tasty. If you are not sure ask the concierge at your hotel – they are a font of all knowledge!
Theatre + Dinner Experience Packages
As an alternative, there are three shows that actually provide food during the show: how brilliant is that?
So if you don’t have time to organise a pre-theatre meal before you head to the theatre, or pick a restaurant when you arrive, check out one of these great evenings out.
- Mamma Mia The Party
- Tony and Tina’s Wedding
- Fawlty Towers Dining experience
Great for Londoners AND folks on London Breaks, but what do you get?
Generally a theatre ticket with a pre-booked table reservation at the venue/performance space at which you are served your dinner during the show.
So what shows are there? In 2023, we have three shows that offer the theatregoer three very different theatre/dinner experiences.
Mamma Mia The Party
My family experienced Mamma Mia! The Party at New Year and loved it but, at any time of year, this is a truly fun-packed, top-class evening for couples, groups and families: hey you could go on your own and still love it! More info…
Tony and Tina’s Wedding
Tony and Tina’s Wedding, is just that. You are guests at the happy couple’s wedding. As well as being able to watch the wedding and the following party unfold you get wined and dined and there is dancing as you become part of the family! Join members of both sides of the wedding party as you gather to celebrate the beautiful union of Tony Nunzio and Tina Vitale…. although, as you can imagine, not everything goes according to plan!
This is the longest running Off Broadway show in history. Here in London it is currently booking to November. More Info…
Faulty Towers Dining Experience
Finally to home grown mayhem and Faulty Towers Dining Experience!
Ever wondered what it might be like to be the Major, or that German family?
This evening out is inspired by, rather than a replication of, one of our greatest ever comedy series: John Cleese and Connie Booth’s Fawlty Towers.
For two hours you will get the chance to meet one of Torquay’s most infamous hoteliers: Basil Fawlty, his long suffering wife Sybil and their inept waiter, Manuel. The concept of this performance is that we, the audience are the diners.
If you love the original show, this immersive dining experience is great fun. More information
