November. After a mild October, we’re finally seeing those gorgeous flame coloured leaves lining the pavement and crunching underfoot. Although it feels like autumn has just started, Christmas day is only 1 month away.
Here at ITI, we can’t cook your turkey or clean your house before the in-laws arrive, but we can help you with your Christmas shopping. With two 5* shows to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience
Great for Christmas gifts and parties, this fabulous show in London’s West End is now booking until 30 April 2017, with six lunch and dinner performances every week, Thursday-Sunday. Now in its fourth year at the luxurious Amba Hotel Charing Cross, Faulty Towers ticket holders can get 20% off accommodation or take advantage of a special Show & Stay package for Sunday nights.
When guests become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant and they’re served by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, pretty much anything can happen – because two-thirds of the show is improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated, then hurtles along in a two-hour tour de force of shambolic service and a ’70s-style 3-course meal. Expect the unexpected!
Performed in The Torquay Suite Theatre of the 4* Amba Hotel Charing Cross, this fully immersive comedy theatre is acclaimed around the world by audiences and critics alike. It ranks consistently high in TripAdvisor’s top London Theatre listings and holds TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for 2015 and 2016.
The Wedding Reception
After a mammoth month at Edinburgh Fringe where it won 4- and 5- star reviews, this bonkers immersive comedy is back in Covent Garden every Friday and Saturday night until 29 April 2017. With gift vouchers available too, it’s the perfect Christmas present.
Will & Kate’s dream was for a small intimate wedding – but Kate’s parents had been dreaming of something else entirely. The happy couple tied the knot romantically in a secluded registry office, turning up next for their quiet and romantic wedding dinner. But ‘quiet and romantic’ are most definitely not in Kate’s parents’ vocabulary… and therein lies the rub. Surprise!
Be a guest at The Wedding Reception. It’s a 2-hour comedy that’s immersive, highly improvised, and as interactive as you want it to be. Featuring award-winning performers in multiple roles, this hilarious new show is ‘outstanding!’ (The New Current) – and, in true wedding reception style, it even includes a sit-down dinner, with cake. Join the party. It’s a rollercoaster ride full of fun, frolics… and more than a few surprises.
Such great treats – something fun, something different, and something that will undoubtedly bring a whole lot of laughter to anyone you are buying for this year. Or of course you can treat the whole family and get discount, because if you book 10 tickets you get the 11th free.
If your friends and family are hard to pin down, buy gift our vouchers instead!
With only a month to go until Christmas Day, make it as relaxing as you can? Buy your Christmas presents now, and spend the next few weeks with a glass of mulled wine by the fire.
