We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we’re making our debut at the Sydney Opera House this September. We’ll be performing in The Utzon Room between 23-29 September, so if you’re local or happen to find yourself in Sydney then come along and join Basil, Sybil and Manuel for dinner in the world’s most iconic arts centre!

More details will be on our website shortly, in the meantime you can sign up to our mailing list and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest updates.

Manuel is Looking for Love

Dashing Spanish waiter seeks compatible woman for romance in the English Riviera. Promises mishaps, misadventures and plenty of tales from Barcelona.


Manuel is looking for love this Valentine’s Day! Tired of constant abuse from Basil and advances from ‘continental’ chefs, he has decided to try and find himself a woman.

Despite the large amount of visitors to their hotel, Manuel has not had much luck in the love department and wishes to spend this year’s Valentines Day with someone other than his Siberian hamster. Basil has already banned any mention of the ‘V’ word this week (along with the mention of certain other things) and is extremely disapproving of his waiter’s desperate pursuits. Sybil has tried her best to help, even encouraging Manuel to sign up to a dating website. However, he seems to have had a bit of trouble setting up a profile and so recorded a video instead. Watch his appeal for love.

His general preferences in a woman:

–        Must be fond of pets

–        Under 5ft 2”

–        Ideally will speak basic Spanish

If you fit this description, or know someone that does, get in touch! You can tweet us with the hashtag #takemanuelout or message us on Facebook. If we get a lot of responses we might even have set up a Faulty Towers speed-dating event… although we won’t mention that to Basil!

Floral Pavilion Theatre & a BBC Merseyside Interview

Thanks to The Floral Pavilion Theatre in New Brighton for hosting three fantastic sold out shows last weekend. The theatre is such a wonderful venue that hosts a wide range of music and comedy throughout the year –  a perfect match for the antics of Basil, Sybil and Manuel! The Faulty team (Donna Gray as Sybil, Paul O’Neil as Basil and Brian Roche as Manuel) thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are looking forward to returning in the near future.

You can listen to Basil, Sybil and Manuel chatting (and bickering) with Nick Robins on his BBC Merseyside breakfast show (fast forward to 3 hours and ten minutes). Just don’t expect Manuel to know what’s for dinner…

In case you didn’t make the show, do check out our website to see when we’ll be touring in Merseyside again.
