Dine on the stage of Nottingham Playhouse

Have you ever wondered what it is like to sit on a world famous stage, looking out at 750 seats? Have you ever daydreamed about dining at Jack Worthing’s country mansion? Would you like the opportunity to eat some of Lady Bracknell’s cucumber sandwiches before she arrives? If you have, read on…

Last year we introduced a new strand to our on-going programme of events and activities at Nottingham Playhouse – the opportunity to dine on our historic stage! Previous events have included a pantomime feast in the kitchen at Cinderella’s home Hardup Hall and a memorable evening of cabaret featuring Stefan Bednarczyk, star of Forever Young.

Meet the people behind The Importance of Being Earnest

Continuing this tradition, we are now offering a one-time-only chance to enjoy dinner on the set of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. The charmingly sumptuous set has already created quite a stir amongst our audiences; some have even said they would like to move in! You’ll also get the chance to meet director Giles Croft and set designer Tim Meacock.

A merry banquet on the set of Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood

There’s another chance to experience dinner on stage for our upcoming pantomime, Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood. Following on from the success of last year’s event, the panto-themed dinner on stage includes sparkling wine and canapés on arrival, a three-course Christmas meal, wine and coffee – all in the glamorous surroundings of our pantomime set.

Dinner on the set of The Importance of Being Earnest takes place on Monday 17th September at 7pm. Tickets are £75 each (£60 for Backstage Pass members).

The Pantomime Christmas Dinner on Stage takes place on Sunday 9th December at 7pm. Tickets are £75 each (£60 for Backstage Pass members).

To book your tickets for these events, please call the Box Office on 0115 941 9419.

All profits from these events will go towards supporting our campaign to develop and rename our studio theatre in honour of our former Artistic Director, John Neville.
