The Wedding Reception
Saturday 17th June 2017, 7:30pm
All Tickets £39.50*


Interactive Theatre International presents:

THE WEDDING RECEPTION – A dining experience
Packing 5-star reviews from appearances in London’s West End and at Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe, this bonkers new immersive comedy from the makers of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience makes its Floral Pavilion debut. Of course, we’re no strangers to ‘proper’ wedding receptions, but this is something else!

Will & Kate’s dream was for a small intimate wedding – but Kate’s parents had been dreaming of something else entirely. The happy couple tied the knot romantically in a secluded registry office, turning up next for their quiet and romantic wedding dinner. But ‘quiet and romantic’ are most definitely not in Kate’s parents’ vocabulary... and therein lies the rub. Surprise!



The Wedding Reception transports audiences to the kind of party most of us have been to… where worry over meeting strangers becomes fully-fledged fun. There’s even a 2-course sit-down meal, with cake for afters! So join the party. It’s a 2-hour comedy that’s immersive, highly improvised, and as interactive as the audience wants it to be, a rollercoaster ride full of fun, frolics… and more than a few surprises!

‘Perfect comedy timing’ 5* British Theatre Guide, Edinburgh Fringe

Ed Byrne: Spoiler Alert
Saturday 24th February 2018, 8:00pm
All Tickets £25.50*
This show is not suitable for young children - Ages 15+ only.


I originally intended to call the show, "I’ll Millennial You in a Minute", but my promoter considered the title, "off-puttingly baffling". That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way.
Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.

'Comedy’s Holy Grail. Go See!' Sunday Times

Recognized as one of the finest observational comics in the industry, Ed’s television credits are countless (provided you’re really bad at counting); Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads and, most recently, he and Dara O Briain filmed the follow up their Big Adventure show for BBC2 entitled Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay

Jason Manford: Muddle Class

He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason since his last smash-hit stand up show but fans of his Absolute Radio show will know this nationally acclaimed comedian hasn’t changed a bit. 'Muddle Class' promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ - causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.

Jason said: “Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, 'it's been ages since you've toured'. I thought 'no way, it was last year wasn't it? Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago! I just got fooled cos I've been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day! So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it's changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven't changed a bit! It's going to be a great tour and I can't wait to see you there.”

‘8 out of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4), ‘The Nightly Show’ (ITV1), ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’ (ITV1), ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Have I Got News For You’, (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic.
