A Right Royale Tea

A hilarious new immersive comedy dining experience, shining the spotlight on a fictional aristocratic family, is coming to central London. A Right Royale Tea is at the Amba Hotel, Charing Cross.

In the show, the audience is part of the action – actors mingle and interact with the diners, with each actor portraying a character as the story unfolds.

Some of the performance is improvised, drawing from topical events and audience participation, with the remaining following a scripted narrative.

The audience sees Lord and Lady Right and their servants fight to raise vital funds to save their crumbling castle.

As Lady Right gets more and more tipsy throughout the fundraiser, Lord Right is on the lookout for a handsome (and rich) suitor for his beloved daughter, Ginny, who is more into Harry Potter than Prince Harry.

Richard, his lawyer, is desperately trying to keep everything in order, while trying to ensure the entertainment arrives on time.

Will the mysterious painting raise enough cash to save the Right family? And who will save the day?

Expect unexpected 1920s elegance and a stiff-upper lip during a delightful traditional afternoon tea including scones, sandwiches and cakes.

With mischievous maids, boisterous butlers, a magical daughter and a sumptuous songstress, what could possibly go wrong?!

Performances take place at the Amba Hotel, Charing Cross, every Sunday afternoon from June 23 from 2.30pm until 5pm.
