The Wedding Reception sees bride and groom Kate and Will expecting a small party to celebrate their wedding. But Kate's parents have planned an altogether different affair - a surprise reception to remember. Cue uninvited guests, misbehaving family and secrets better left in the closet...

This unbeatable theatrical dining experience is a side-splitting piece of comedy theatre that comes complete with a 2-course dinner and cake for afters. So join the party. It's immersive, highly improvised, and as interactive as the audience wants it to be - a rollercoaster ride full of fun, frolics, and more than a few surprises!
