A delectable retelling of the original fairytale, Beauty and the Feast takes over the Vaults under Waterloo this winter. Hoping to amuse your bouche with some fine art feasting, it's a palatable pantomime that will see you arrive as beauty and leave as beast. Your Godmother, Fairy Liquid, is tired of mute dinners and boring conversations, so she is serving up a theatrical dining experience like no other. Follow in the footsteps of Belle through the grey palace, greeting serving staff who are desperate to serve along the way. After dinner and plentiful booze, you must try to break the romantic curse. If you're successful, the celebration will continue late into the night, with disco balls and chandeliers galore. And don't forget to leave your manners at the door.
