A loving tribute to the series of a very similar name, Faulty Towers takes the characters of John Cleese’s classic sitcom and resurrects them for a night of drinking and dining. Having been conceived back in 1997, the touring show has been running for much, much longer than the show that inspired it, selling out shows across the world as it goes. A series of loose skits, the night centres on a meal at the hotel, with the characters – Basil, Sybil and Manuel – interacting with the audience throughout. Last two courses and spanning three courses, it should be a laugh regardless of your level of knowledge of the original.

Fri 30 Aug – Thu 5 Sep, The Lowry, Pier 8, Salford M50 3AZ, 7pm ( and 12pm matinees on Sat 31 Aug & Sun 1 Sep), £38.50 – £43.50, http://www.thelowry.com/
