A Restaurant Inspired By The Twits Is Coming To London

Looks revolting, tastes delicious.

Posted on

Dinner At The Twits is exactly what it says on the tin. An immersive dining experience with Roald Dahl's famous duo: The Twits.

It's being held at London's Vaults from 4 September to 30 October.

It's being run by Les Enfants Terribles, an Olivier-award nominated theatre company, who do the best interactive theatre in the UK (IMO).

Their shows are full-scale, big-budget and always for a limited time only. That's a picture from last year's Enfants Terrible's production of Alice Adventures Underground – which was incredible BTW. I went three times.

The dinner is being held in celebration of Roald Dahl's 100th birthday and will be as gloriously gruesome as the books.

Expect glass-eyes in cocktails, bird pie and perfectly horrid hosts.

Guests will arrive at the Windowless House to start their evening with cocktails from Mr Twit's Ghastly Garden.

But there'll be no nasty nosey little children – the show is 16+, making it the first adaptation of one of Dahl's children’s titles specifically for adults. It's about damn time.

After a full feast of various canapes, bird pie and perilous pudding as well as entertainment from The Twits themselves, you have a chance to roam around the unbelievable venue.

The food is prepared by Bombas & Parr, makers of awe-inspiring culinary delights, and will make your toes curl – in horror when you look at it, then delight when you taste it.
