A Fawlty Towers inspired dining experience is coming to Bolton

Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up mayhem on a plate alongside a three-course meal and two hours of non-stop laughter

This year’s Bolton Food & Drink Festival is gearing up to be a spectacular showpiece event with a host of celebrity chefs, an artisan market, children’s marquee and a wealth of musical acts to enthral and entertain over the August Bank Holiday (26th -29th August).

Now, two more attractions have been added to the menu of events as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up mayhem on a plate alongside a three-course meal and two hours of non-stop laughter as the Faulty Towers Dining Experience comes to Bolton.

Diners can expect an evening of fun and enjoy a brilliant night out as they peep behind the curtain of the BBC’s much-loved TV show Fawlty Towers and experience it from the inside.

With over 70% of the event improvised, this is an immersive and interactive comedy spectacular where anything can happen.

The Faulty Towers dining experience will be held on Sunday 28th August, doors open at 6.30pm and the show starts at 7pm, and will be held at the Bolton Albert Halls 

Hungry for more? If music is your thing, then The King Cush Band – Hairy Biker Si King’s 10-piece band – will certainly whet your appetite.

Whenever King Cush are playing to either a small club or a festival crowd of thousands, they never fail to put on a great show.

With their special blend of Funk, Rock, Blues and Disco, The King Cush Band showcase great musicianship and amazing songs, they are sure to keep the party atmosphere going.

“We are really excited to be playing at the Bolton Food & Drink Festival this year, it’s always such a laugh and being able to play at the amazing Albert Halls is an honour,” said Si.

“Everyone in King Cush is really looking forward to it, it’s going to be an absolute blast”

You can catch Si and the band playing on Saturday 27th August, 7pm at Bolton Albert Halls.

“This years Food & Drink Festival is so exciting, the sheer variety of events and shows on offer is incredible,” said Cllr Hilary Fairclough, Cabinet member for Culture.

“Everyone involved has worked really hard to offer something for everyone, the festival is a real cultural highlight for Bolton and I for one cannot wait to welcome everyone to the festivities in August.”

Tickets for this years Food & Drink festival can be booked here.
