Theatre The Beacon


Packing 5-star reviews from its last visit to Poole and on tour, this mad immersive comedy from the makers of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience returns to Lighthouse promising yet more 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. There’s even a sit-down meal – and maybe some dancing! So join the party – it’s a rollercoaster ride with more than a few surprises!
