Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience

It’s the show you’ve all been asking for – and its Fringe debut is brought to you by the people behind the worldwide smash hit, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.

Join the pride of Peckham in a fun-filled knees-up as the Trotters try to drum up some cash in a night of wheeling, dealing and plenty of laughs. Deals are brokered, schemes are hatched and quizzes quizzed in a downright t’riffic night out with some cushty pub grub.

Brilliantly funny, Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience is an immersive, madcap, interactive theatre show created in loving tribute to the BBC’s Only Fools & Horses TV series. With one-off improvisation, an original script, side-splitting humour and the audience slap bang in the centre of the action - you'd be a plonker to miss it.

All tickets include a 3-course meal. If you have special diet or seating requirements, or celebrating an event, please let us know here.
