For a Christmas night out with a difference why not join the staff of one of the world's most infamous hotels for a three course banquet with Basil, Sybil and Manuel?

'Faulty Towers - the Dining Experience' has been earning rave reviews since it premiered in Brisbane, Australia in April 1997.

Since then, audiences around the globe have enjoyed the opportunity to see what it would be like to eat out while being served by Basil, Sybil and Manuel.

This two hour show by Interactive Theatre International is being brought to The Crowne Plaza on Thursday, December 4 by the team at An Táin Arts Centre.

Centre Manager Paul Hayes says it's part of their policy of bringing events out into the community.

'The show has been immensely successful and may appeal to an audience who wouldn't normally go to the theatre.'

This 5-star critically acclaimed production is constantly in demand throughout the Australia, Europe, United Kingdom, Ireland, Scandinavia, United Arab Emirates and has earned rave reviews from fans of Fawlty Towers.

Diners will be greeted at the bar by Basil himself and they will enjoy a mulled wine reception followed by a festive three course banquet.

While the theatre company stress that the performance portrays the spirit of the characters and doesn't use the script by John Cleese and Connie Booth, it recreates the mayhem and chaos associated with the famous hotel.

Many of the most famous episodes from the cult series are recalled as everything that can possibly go wrong does.

However, as the food is really coming from the excellent kitchen of the Crowne Plaza, diners need not worry about what the Health Inspector might find!

The cast of the Irish production feature Corin Stuart as Basil, Imogen Miller-Porter as his long suffering wife Sybil, and Brian Roche as the language challenged Manuel.

The show gets underway at 7p.m. and tickets, priced €50, can be booked at
