Theatre The Terrace Cafe


– A comedy experience promising love, honour and disarray

Packing 5-star reviews from London’s West End and Edinburgh Fringe, this bonkers immersive comedy from the makers of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience makes its Lighthouse debut promising love, honour and disarray…

The Wedding Reception sees Kate and Will expecting a small party to celebrate their wedding. But Kate’s mum had other plans... Cue uninvited guests, misbehaving family and secrets better left in the closet!

This unbeatable theatrical dining experience is a side-splitting, highly improvised comedy featuring four actors playing nine characters in a whirlwind two hours full of laughter, love and tears. It even includes a sit-down meal – and maybe some dancing!

- ‘Nothing less than genius’ 5* FringeGuru, Brighton Fringe
