Packing 5-star reviews from appearances in London's West End, Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe, this bonkers new immersive comedy from the makers of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience returns to Widcombe Social Club by popular demand, complete with new bits! Of course, we're no strangers to 'proper' wedding receptions, but this is something else!

Will & Kate's dream was for a small intimate wedding - but Kate's parents had been dreaming of something else entirely. The happy couple tied the knot romantically in a secluded registry office, turning up next for their quiet and romantic wedding dinner. But 'quiet and romantic' are most definitely not in Kate's parents' vocabulary...and therein lies the rub. Surprise!

The Wedding Reception transports audiences to the kind of party most of us have been to...where worry over meeting strangers becomes fully-fledged fun. There's even a 3-course sit-down meal! So join the party. It's a 2-hour comedy that's immersive, highly improvised, and as interactive as the audience wants it to be, a rollercoaster ride full of fun, frolics...and more than a few surprises!
