Fawlty Towers Live, the official themed dinner show fully endorsed by John Cleese and Connie Booth, is opening the doors of the notorious Fawlty Towers dining room at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019. Brace yourself for some theatrical mayhem as Basil, Sybil, Manuel and Polly all host brave diners at The Hilton Edinburgh Carlton Hotel between 2 August – 26 August.

Adapted from the original scripts by John Cleese and Connie Booth, diners can check in to relive the golden era of British comedy and reacquaint themselves with some of the country’s most loved TV characters. During a stunning three course gourmet meal, Basil (Jonathan Hansler), Sybil (Jess-Luisa Flynn), Manuel (David Boyle) and Polly (Erin Leighton) will perform around the restaurant with uproarious live action recreating the gang’s iconic TV moments – with you as the much honoured guest.

Whether a nostalgic trip down memory lane or a first visit to a chaotic world ‘you know nothing’ about, Fawlty Towers Live is an irresistible and delectable show for generations old and young to devour with equal delight.
