The Cradocks namedrop, argue, insult, parlez dodgy Français, sing, and reveal Fanny’s darkest secrets as they serve up a feast of entertainment. Fanny hilariously demonstrates the first two courses with help from the audience, regular bursts of song with Johnnie at the piano, and plenty of laughter.

Kate McNab & John Telfer star as Fanny & Johnnie. Actor, singer & musical director John Telfer is well known from TV’s Bergerac and as Alan Franks, Vicar of Ambridge in The Archers. Jazz singer Kate is also well known through her own company The Ministry of Entertainment.

Dinner with the Cradocks is full of theatrical flavour & culinary delights. And tickets sell like Fanny’s hot doughnuts. A highly entertaining & hugely enjoyable night out around the table with new and old friends – a feast for all the senses!

Set Menu:

Starter: Prawn Cocktail
Main: Chicken Chasseur or a vegetarian Mushroom Strogonoff
Dessert: Black Forest Gateau

In order to truly honour the true spirit of Fanny Cradock, 70s dress is welcomed though by no means a requirement!
