DINNER THEATRE IS BACK ON THE MENU AT LAST—Guide2Bristol

Check out the reviews »


Kate McNab and John Telfer return as Fanny and Johnny. Well-known jazz singer Kate also performs with her own company The Ministry of Entertainment. Actor, singer and musical director John Telfer was a regular in Bergerac and is currently the Vicar of Ambridge in Radio 4’s The Archers.

The evening includes a three course meal a la Cradock, demonstrated by Fanny before it’s served—with a bit of help from the audience (and vegetarian options available). Plus regular bursts of song assisted by Johnnie at the piano. And even some local history when Fanny’s dark roots are revealed: her grandfather came from Bath and the family fortune came from an undertakers shop on Bristol’s Park Street. Dine with the Cradocks and they’ll tell you all about it.

Writer/Producer Sheila Hannon said, ‘Last year’s run sold out well in advance and a lot of people missed out, so book early and don’t be disappointed.’

wonderful evening… my students were quite simply enthralled” — group organiser

Eastenders with posh people and poetry!” — audience member

An extraordinary walking tour revealing Bath’s best kept secret: Mary Shelley wrote much of FRANKENSTEIN in Bath. Secrets and lies, suicides, concealed births, ruined reputations and false identities – walk in Mary Shelley’s footsteps as she wrote her gothic masterpiece in the autumn/winter of 1816/17.

FRANKENSTEIN IN BATH takes you where she lived, where she wrote, and where she kept her dark secrets – as a chain of real life disasters unfolded around her.

To mark the 200th anniversary of FRANKENSTEIN’s publication, there’s now a plaque to Mary Shelley in Bath – included in the tour.

Current Productions Blood and Butchery in Bedminster

Blood and Butchery in Bedminster, Tuesday evenings

Bedminsterwhere graves were robbed by body snatchers, and corpses buried in concrete coffins.

Where the old Chinese laundry vanished years ago, and where ‘laundering’ now means money, big money, 13 million, ‘laundered’ through a Bedminster bank.

Where criminals were sentenced to hang in public, their cadavers flayed, their skin tanned and made into…

…the answer is in BLOOD AND BUTCHERY IN BEDMINSTER, our new pub/walking tour, Tuesdays from 23 January 2018.


Join us at The Ropewalk on Bedminster Parade and visit a few more pubs along the way, all with fascinating tales to tell – including the gruesome fate of John Horwood; the man eaten by a lion; and Bedminster’s own Romeo and Juliet.

Our last walking tour, FRANKENSTEIN IN BATH, won Best Live Performance at 2017’s Creative Bath Awards. All you need to know is here, so book for this one now, it’s selling fast: buy tickets »
