In celebration of what would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday on 13 September 2016, London is putting on a show… As well as the Roald Dahl afternoon tea at The Shard, you can also throw yourself into a gruesome interactive theatrical dining experience under the arches at Waterloo Station
Take your seat at the worst dinner party in the world – the residence of the revolting Mr and Mrs Twit. Based on The Twits, the best-selling title from Roald Dahl, the world’s number-one storyteller, join two of the most exquisitely appalling characters inside their windowless house and ghastly garden for a grown-up journey down memory lane. But be warned: Dinner at the Twits is not for the faint of heart!
Brought to you by Les Enfants Terribles and ebp, the team behind the Olivier Award-nominated smash hit Alice’s Adventures Underground, in association with Bompas & Parr and Creature of London, Dinner at the Twits is a gloriously gruesome interactive theatrical dining experience that will blow your mind and tickle your tastebuds.
Your evening will include a banquet of deliciously disgusting dishes, to be enjoyed with homemade cocktails, Mr Twit’s special brew and Mrs Twit’s potent punch. Fish the glass eye from your cocktail, take a slice of bird pie, and enjoy all manner of fabulously foul food while being entertained by your horrid hosts.
Over 90 minutes you will be given a prickly cocktail aperitif, eat gruesome hors d’oeuvres, hunt for concealed canapes, brave a baroque bird pie banquet and potentially perilous pudding in the windowless dining room, all served with ½ bottle of wine or non-alcoholic drinks.

Premium ticket holders will also receive an additional fizz cocktail on arrival prepared by the mixologists at Bompas & Parr, a bar of Mr Twit’s personally smoked chocolate, a cup of Mrs Twit’s home brew in the Mr and Mrs Twit’s Upside Down Cocktail Cavern and a copy of the limited edition Dinner at the Twits programme, which includes exclusive recipes from Bompas & Parr.
Directed by Emma Earle, adapted by Oliver Lansley and Anthony Spargo, and designed by Samuel Wyer, the gloriously gruesome interactive theatrical dining experience is running now until 30 October at The Vaults under Waterloo station.
