Only Fools & Horses is one of the programmes I grew up watching with my grandparents and I still enjoy watching it today, especially around Christmas. It’s the sort of show that always cheers you up so when my friend suggested an evening of Only Fools and Horses style entertainment with an accompanying 3 course meal it sounded like something fun and different to do. Comedy dining certainly provide an entertaining night to remember.
The actors portray the characters really well and also interact with the audience. The actress who played Marlene took a shine to my boyfriend and was pretending he was her son Tyler! They re-enacted some of the classic scenes, such as the iconic Batman and Robin fancy dress episode but put their own twist on it to make it relevant to the evening and audience.
The food was enjoyable and there was a choice of 3 dishes for each course, most of which had some relation to Only Fools. I opted for tomato soup to start, followed by fish and chips then chocolate torte to finish. We were also offered a complimentary glass of prosecco on arrival. At about £39 per ticket it was great value for money. The show I went to was at Cliffs Pavillion in Southend but they tour around the country. I’d definitely recommend it as a fun night out. Lovely Jubbly!
Outfit wise I went for monochrome with a pop of red. These M&S boots are so comfortable so I made the most of the dry weather and teamed them with a grey velvet blazer from Topshop, velvet skinny jeans also from Topshop and a T-shirt from MCQ. I don’t get out as often as I used to so any excuse to get dressed up.
