Dinner At The Twits reveals gruesome menu details

First Published 16 August 2016, Last Updated 16 August 2016

Immersive theatrical dining experience, Dinner At The Twits, will be offering guests a host of disgusting cocktails and canapés, including a rather odious bespoke beer.

Brought to you by the team behind the Olivier Award-nominated production Alice’s Adventures Underground, and culinary wizards Bompas & Barr, Dinner At The Twits promises an utterly gruesome gastronomic experience, with further menu details announced today.

Top of the billing is Mr Twit’s Odious Ale, a bespoke beer brewed with yeast swabbed from Roald Dahl’s very own writing chair. Further to this foul refreshment, guests can look forward to a banquet including Glowing Hug Tight Glue (no, we don’t know what it is either), Bloater Paste, Treasures of the Compost Heap and Bird Pie – Your Night of a Thousand Claws. Puddings are described as “perilous”.

Commenting on this cursed culinary cornucopia, Harry Parr, of Bompas & Parr, said: “A surprising number of our previous activations have been inspired by Roald Dahl in some way or other…so it’s been a delight to work directly with the Roald Dahl Estate and, indirectly, one of the best loved storytellers of all time, in his centenary year.
“By incorporating wild yeast cultured from inside Roald Dahl’s writing chair in our beer to accompany Dinner At The Twits, it feels like we are injecting his own dark humour and effervescent sense of fun into the brew.”
Those too timid to experience dinner with the terrible Twits can enjoy tantalising tinctures in the Muggle-Wumps’ Downside Up Cocktail Cavern.

Dinner At The Twits runs at The Vaults, Waterloo from 4 September – 4 October. You can buy tickets through us here.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
