Five reasons why your VENUE needs A Right Royale Tea - the latest in interactive comedy dining
In the Summer of 2019, A Right Royale Tea – the unique comedy afternoon tea dining experience with a stiff upper-lip – launched in London to fantastic reviews and audience reactions. Lord and Lady Right entertained the guests with an afternoon tea to remember, whilst their trusty servants managed to hold everything together – just!
With the production now available to hire for venues around the UK – from hotels to golf clubs, stately homes to castles - 2020 is the perfect time to bring a new, original and very British interactive comedy dining experience to attract guests.
Here are the top five reasons why A Right Royale Tea should be next on your events programme.
1.“A hilarious romp”. Jewish Weekly
With Lord and Lady Right hosting an afternoon tea to raise vital funds for their crumbling castle, it is left to their loyal band of servants to make sure everything runs tickety-boo. Their themed-party is set in the 1920s and the script delivers a good old British knees-up, a stiff upper-lip and plenty of flag-waving pomp and circumstance.
With Downton Abbey The Movie launching this week, the latest Royal Baby arriving in the Spring of 2019 and The Crown Series 3 set to premiere on 17th November 2019 (starring Olivia Coleman), now is the ideal to time jump on the Butler’s coattails and take advantage of the Royal obsession gripping the World.
During the London run, approximately 50% of the ticket holders were from USA and Canada with the majority of the remaining guests in the over 50s age bracket.
2.“It has a lot of heart”. View from the Cheap Seats
The performance centres on Lord and Lady Right, who have fallen on hard times having been ostracised by the Royal Family and their less-than-sensible spending habits. Their loyal butler and lawyer are desperately trying to save the family from ruin, whilst the Lordship insists everyone to Keep Calm and Carry On. The script shows the relationships between the Upstairs and the Downstairs, the aristocracy and the help, and, as the British spirit usually does, everything comes together at the very end – just.
3. “The high level of banter, family jokes and well-placed humour raises laughs from the tea drinking guests.” London Theatre Review
From the moment you check-in, to the moment you leave the venue, A Right Royale Tea will keep guests entertained. The audience can be as involved as they like as the cast perform around cabaret-style table during a two-course meal. Whilst the food offering can be around a two-course afternoon tea, the performance can be adapted for lunch or dinner (with a third course served at the end of the performance).
During the London run sandwiches were served as the first course and scones, clotted cream & jam and cakes served as the second course over the 2-hour performance.
4. “An exciting new dining experience that brightens any cream tea” Ron Martin, theatre producer and agent
