It's going to be 'lovely jubbly' at Northampton's Deco Theatre with Del Boy, Rodney, and Uncle Albert among the guest list at an “Only Fools And Courses” tribute dining experience at Northampton's Deco Theatre next month.
Hosted by “Boycie and Marlene”, the tribute to the legendary BBC comedy show combines fine dining with a top class cast guaranteeing an evening when just about anything can happen, and probably will, with a few surprises along the way too!
It all takes place at The Deco Theatre, in Abington Square, Northampton, on Saturday, December 5, and again the following Saturday, December 12.
Interest has been so encouraging that organisers are now talking about a 'Fawlty Towers' themed event next year, with tributes to other famous shows also in the pipeline.
"It's a concept that has proved really popular in and around London, so we thought it would be a good idea to bring it to Northampton," explained organiser Jill Roach, of Stage Right Productions. "Enjoyment is at the top of the menu, and I'm confident there'll be large helpings of laughter and good fun!
"I've been to have a look, and I had a fantastic evening with plenty of laughs and a great atmosphere - but what else could you expect when you have a top class cast of actors who do real justice to a brilliant show, and bring to life those comedy legends such as Del Boy, Rodney, Boycie and the rest.
"We've had a fantastic response since we first advertised it, but there are still some spaces left, and if the evening is as successful as I hope it will be then we'll be doing more next year, including a 'Fawlty Towers' experience which - again - makes you think you really are in that famous Torquay hotel watching Basil, Manuel and the calamitous crew doing their worst!"
Even the menu choices, which include Beef and Guiness Pie and Black Forest Gateaux, are what you would expect from the Nags Head in Peckham – the popular local pub frequented by the Trotters, Trigger and the rest of the ‘Only Fools’ gang.
Tickets for the Only Fools And Courses Dining Invitation cost £37.50 each, to include a three course meal. A table of 10 can be booked for £350. To book, contact Stage Right Productions, on 01604 622749.
