Beautiful – The Carole King Musical is now playing in London’s West End.

Thursday 17 December 2015

Long before she was Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent.
She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was just seventeen. By the time she reached her twenties she had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll from Aretha Franklin to the Monkees, the Drifters, to the Shirelles. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation, with countless classics such as
You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman, Take Good Care of my Baby, You’ve Got a Friend, So Far Away, It Might As Well Rain Until September, Up on the Roof, and Locomotion.

Fawlty Towers Night in Nottingham
Orchard Hotel – Nottingham (Self-Drive)
Sunday 11th October 2015

Book online by Friday 7 August for just £74pp

Looking after the guests on their arrival and during dinner will be Basil, Sybil and Manuel – let mayhem commence!

Info on the theme:
Fawlty Towers theme night at The Orchard Hotel, provided by the John Cleese impersonator, Edmond Wells, the only 6' 7" Basil Fawlty impersonator who is the same height, walks the walk, and talks the talk: "You know you really do look like me." Quote from John Cleese. Comes complete with the Fawlty Towers team of Manuel and Sybil. As seen on ITV- "Will the Real Basil Fawlty Stand Up!"

Typically the Fawlty Towers theme night will start with meeting and greeting the guests at reception. Basil will announce dinner, and have Manuel lead the guests to the tables in time honoured fashion, with an alternative "FIRE" sketch if suitable, complete with alarm and CO2 extinguisher. (Works a lot quicker than any Toastmaster)! Sybil will be wading her way through her second vat of wine, and making herself available to just about anyone.... Manuel will feature as a waste of space, whilst Basil will be giving the sort of service one would expect from a Top Class Torquay Hotelier, all without mentioning the war!

Around 80% of the work will be interactive with guests at the tables. Numerous props and routines are all honed to perfection, with excellent timing. As inspired by the genius of John Cleese, and his stay at the Hotel Gleneagles Torquay.


  • 1 Night’s Accomodation at the Orchard Hotel
  • 3 Course Evening Meal
  • Full English Breakfast
  • Fawlty Towers Entertainment

This is a self-drive package
