Ab Fab’s Patsy, Del Boy and Basil Fawlty to feature in special one-off dining event.

Have a laugh, and help raise funds for the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds, by joining a very special comedy dining experience next month.

With the permission of George Agnew, the dinner with a difference will take place at Blackthorpe Barns from 7.30pm on March 9 – and you can expect not only great food in the ticket price, but side-splitting entertainment in the form of some of our best-loved comedy characters.

Ab Fab’s Patsy will be doing the rounds at the start of the night, helping to serve out Kir Royales (let’s hope she doesn’t drink them all) before you sit down to a three course dinner – with company.

Presented by Comedy Dinner Shows, the night promises anarchy and chaos from Basil Fawlty, Frank Spencer, Del Boy and others.
