FANNY & JOHNNIE CRADOCK
COOK THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK
With Kate McNab & John Telfer as the Cradocks
Bristol Food Connections have invited Fanny & Johnnie Cradock into their fabulous Orangery Marquee on College Green on Friday 29 April where Kate’s Kitchen will serve Fanny’s Prawn Cocktail, Victory Chicken and Salute Escoffier.
“The best show about food I’ve seen. Perfect festival fodder”
— Charlie Hicks, Total Produce
Bristol Food Connections is produced in partnership with Great Western Railway, the BBC and Bristol City Council
and then in The Cotwolds
The Beaufort Arms at Hawkesbury Upton enjoyed Major & Mrs Cradock so much last time they’re back for a double. Join the Cradocks for a great dinner and show at this lovely Cotswold pub on Friday and Saturday 20/21 May
DINNER THEATRE IS BACK ON THE MENU AT LAST—Guide2Bristol
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.’
