An Audience with King Henry VIII

The King, recently married to his new, and sixth, wife, Queen Catherine Parr, is in poor health; his leg continues to cause him considerable pain and he is often in a poor humour!
In the course of the 'audience', His Majesty will recount the events of his long reign; telling of his wives and his children, and His Majesty will invite his Loyal Subjects to Petition him or question him on ANY related subject : there may be some surprising answers - a lively Q&A is assured!’

Faulty Towers Dining Experience
This 5 star show that tours the world is ‘a two-hour eat, drink and laugh sensation’! (Daily Telegraph, UK)
When the audience become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant, pretty much anything can happen – because 70% of the show is improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated. It then hurtles along in a 2-hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a ‘70s-style 3-course meal together with a good dollop of mayhem. Expect the unexpected!
Internationally acclaimed, the show was born in April 1997 as a loving tribute to the BBC’s much-loved TV series. Nearly a million people around the world have seen it since.
As of 2019, 11 teams of cast working from England and Australia tour around 20 countries a year. The show is also into its eighth year in London’s West End, where it holds TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.
Please note: The ticket price includes a 3 course meal. Special dietary requirements must be made directly with the venue a minimum of 1 week before the event.

The Thunder Girls
Fame and greed tore their friendship apart,
They haven’t spoken in decades ….
Ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors when legendary bands meet up to discuss a reunion? What’s really going on behind the hugs and kisses at those reunion press conferences?
THE THUNDER GIRLS were a successful ‘80s girl band until lead singer, Chrissie, sensationally quit the Band to pursue a solo career taking with her, Rick, the Band’s manager. Chrissie broke the Girl Code as Rick was also the boyfriend of Band mate, Roxanne.
At the reunion dinner from hell, Chrissie tries to reunite the band to salvage herself from bankruptcy after being conned out of her fortune by her toyboy husband.
But is there a price which can heal the wounds?
Or maybe some friendships never die, even if you want them to?
30 years later, can lightning strike twice?
