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.’
