Battle of the Bands Final & Macy Gray in concert It’s the one we’ve all been waiting for. Some of the island’s best musicians go head to head after weeks of elimination rounds to vye for the title of Bahrain’s best band of 2012. The winners will walk away with some awesome prizes.
Then it’s on to the second big event of the night with a live performance from award-winning singer Macy Gray.
With so much happening, this promises to be one of the best nights out on the island this month. Coral Bay, Fri, Dec 7. Tickets BD10, inclusive of a welcome drink, are available at the door or in advance at Coral Bay, JJ’s and BMMI shops in Mina Salman.
Faulty Towers the Dining Experience Featuring all the best jokes and a great meal, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a loosely-scripted, pitch-perfect ‘13th episode’ of the TV series which develops the characters made famous by John Cleese, Prunella Scales and Andrew Sachs.
Arrive at The Torquay Suit where diners are greeted by the staff of the Faulty Towers hotel. You’ll be allocated your table. The show hurtles along as Sybil, Basil and Manuel serve the meal... Basil is manic, Sybil domineering, and Manuel – of course – is hopelessly language-challenged. Everything that can go wrong does, in some wonderfully controlled chaos. Just don’t mention the war!
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a site-specific, ‘total immersion’ piece of interactive comedy theatre performed in the restaurant: the audience are the diners and the cast their warring waiters. It provides two hours of face-aching fun as well as a delicious meal - Mr Faulty will surprise you with the menu on the night. Diplomat Radisson Blu, December 5-10 with additional lunch shows Dec 7 & 8. BD35 for lunch and BD40 for dinner. Doors open at 7.30pm, dinner at 8pm, and lunch at 1pm. Call (17 531 666).
