Is this the ultimate perfect Mother’s Day treat? Quite possibly. 


Improvised mayhem, three courses and two hours of non-stop laughter: the legendary Faulty Towers Dining Experience is coming to Bristol. 


Aired in the 1970s, Fawlty Towers is a beloved BBC sitcom, which details the exploits and misadventures of hotelier Basil Fawlty, his acerbic wife Sybil, as well as their employees.

Want to relive the fun and mayhem of the original series? Now you can, when the legendary 'Faulty Towers Dining Experience' arrives in Bristol. 


Stopping off at Bristol's Mercure Brigstow Hotel between the 21 March and 22 March, the international tribute experience allows Faulty Towers fans to climb inside their favourite sitcom.


During a two-hour, interactive show, you’ll become part of the action whilst Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up mayhem on a platter, with bags of gags and shambolic service. 


With much of the show entirely improvised, almost anything can happen during a Faulty Towers Dining Experience.

Internationally acclaimed, the Faulty Towers Dining Experience started in April 1997 as a loving tribute to the BBC TV series. Over a million people worldwide have seen it since.
