Basil &Co: The Comedy Dinner Show

Don’t miss out – Britain’s No.1 Fawlty Towers Act are returning to Hull City Hall and Basil, Sybil and Manuel treat the audience to a two-hour eat, drink and hilarious comedy dining experience which evokes this popular BBC sitcom. It’s a hilarious evening of non-stop fun and comedy all the way, with people laughing so much they end up in tears’ (Yorkshire Post).

It’s a rip roaring night of pure theatrical improvisational comedy, parody and caricature – book early though, this show sells out!

Anything can happen, service is guaranteed to go wrong and expect lashings of laughter and laugh out loud comedic mishaps from a hapless hotel owner and Spanish waiter.

Established since 1997, this smash hit show has long been established as the leading interactive comedy act, incorporating highly physical and comedy packed performances with slapstick inspired humour and has attracted critical praise for its audience interaction.

Must be booked before Tuesday 30 October

Freedom FEASTival 2018

A locally grown feast for everyone, The Freedom FEASTival is a gastronomic event like no other!

The volunteer-led, free feast encourages strangers to come together to meet, talk, eat and remind each other that connectivity is as vital as the food we eat.

Last year over 2,000 people came together in two sittings to share the free gastronomic feast in Queen’s Garden’s as part of the 10th Freedom Festival celebrations. As theatrical performers served and entertained guests, strangers sat together to share in the delight of locally grown and cooked produce, eaten as part of a true community feast.

Working in partnership with Hull Harvest Feastival Mutual Aid and Artlink alongside multiple community groups across the city, the Freedom FEASTival is a long-lasting programme rooted in a broader discussion around food equity, empowerment and community cohesion.

Everyone is welcome to get involved in this extraordinary community project. You can:

  • Grow your own food
  • Sow-a-row
  • Make a veg pledges
  • Volunteer on the day – from cooking the feast to serving the food.

More information about getting involved can be found on the Freedom Festival website.
