Dinner at the Twits
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the format of the evening?
Dinner at The Twits is a fully integrated, immersive dining experience.
First, fish the glass eye from your prickly cocktail apertif, eat gruesome hors d’oeuvres and hunt for concealed canapes, before braving a baroque bird pie banquet and potentially perilous pudding, whilst experiencing 90 minutes of entertainment from the worst hosts ever before heading to Mr and Mrs Twit's Upside Down Cocktail Cavern.
Mr & Mrs Twit have also graciously opened up Mr and Mrs Twit's Upside Down Cocktail Cavern to those too timid to try their culinary cornucopia. From 6pm, come in and relax in their topsy turvy turnabout world with questionable cocktails and tantalising tinctures.
How long does the show last?
Dinner at The Twits has a running time of 90 minutes with no interval.
What age range is it for?
Dinner at The Twits is recommended for audiences aged 16+, not for nasty, nosey little children. It is well known that the Twits dislike children. Their meal and their conversation has been specifically designed for adults. Children under 14 years old will not be admitted. Those between 14 and 16 can be admitted on the understanding that they do not smile, laugh, or play with the Twits’ exquisite food. And that they finish every scrap. Any person under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Do I need to bring ID?
As alcohol is served as part of the show, you may be asked for photo ID. If you cannot prove your age, you will not be served alcohol.
Where is it and how do I get there?
The Twits are taking over The Vaults in Waterloo for their dinner party.
