The Church is an events and dining experience in a 12th century church in Northampton, and each year they host an array of Christmas events.
The Bridge Street venue looks forward to welcoming guests to celebrate the festive season and is eager to share them with Chronicle & Echo readers.
For an upmarket, fine dining experience, this could be the place to take your loved ones or to book for a Christmas do – particularly if their upcoming themed night later this month takes your fancy.
Here is what is coming up during the festive season at The Church Northampton…
Fawlty Towers Christmas Special – Saturday 25 November
After the “huge success and demand” after their previous Fawlty Towers evening, the event is running again at the end of the month on Saturday, November 25.
Sharing what attendees can expect from the evening, The Church said: “It’s Christmas at Fawlty Towers, but Basil’s finding it a challenge to get into the Christmas spirit.
“He booked a father Christmas who hasn’t turned up, and Manuel is a very poor substitute. There’s rat poison on the turkey so he has to turn to a local chef for help, while keeping the health inspector at bay.
“He still hasn’t hung the decorations despite promising Sybil it would be done before dinner and, to make things worse, there’s a German Christmas Market taking place next door.
“As long as no one mentions the war, surely everything will go smoothly?
“Join Basil, Sybil and Manuel for a hilarious seasonal celebration featuring favourite moments from the TV series, with a special Christmas twist.”
Food pre-orders are required before the event and you can find a glimpse of the menu choices below.
There are three starters, varying across soup, prawns and festive pate. For the main course, the choice is between festive roast turkey, vegan roasted butternut, salmon, vegetable stew, and pork belly – each with accompanying extras.
Crumble, cheesecake and ice cream are the dessert options and you can pay a surplus charge of £8 for a cheeseboard for two, containing local produce.
The event will run from 7pm on Saturday evening until midnight, and ticket sales close next Friday (November 17) so be quick to secure your place.

The Church’s Christmas parties are available from Monday, November 27 to Saturday, December 23, and three courses are priced at £55 per person.
