Last month we visited the hidden chambers of London’s Waterloo station for a glorious and gruesome evening hosted by Roald Dahl’s most grotesque couple – The Twits.
On arrival we were greeted by curious cocktails invented by the talented mixologists at Bompas and Parr, we were then shortly whisked off to The Twit’s famous ghastly garden where we were left to sample the delights of cold spaghetti worms, glue soup, pigs ears and Bloody Mary glazed chicken hearts all washed down with a refreshing ‘Sting & Tonic’.
The hideous couple then made their grand entrance into the garden inviting us to join them in their windowless house for an ‘extra special’ banquet to celebrate the renewal of their wedding vows.
In the dining hall we were served Mr Twit’s notorious bird pie, accompanying the feathered fare was six-legged slaw, muddied spuds and bubbling parsley liquor. While we feasted upon the first course the characters of Mr and Mrs Twit performed hilarious and horrible antics alongside their captive Muggle-wump monkeys.
After polishing off our ‘Terrible’ trifles, the dramatic finale for Mr and Mrs Twit took place, ending the show in a familar style to Dahl’s original book.
The immersive experience ingeniously captured the weird and wonderful world of Roald Dahl’s books, challenging our senses at every stage of the show.
If you’re a Roald Dahl fan we would definitely recommend booking in a dinner with The Twits before the dining experience ends on the 30th October
