Err Basil, I don’t think you should point at Sybil like that, you never know what might happen!
This week’s tweet of the week from Sarah-Jane (@newbarley) who came to see the show at The Grand Theatre (@Grand_Theatre), Blackpool in the UK!
Our Norway tour concluded with three nights at Gaffel Og Karaffel in the coastal town of Stavanger. Here are some of our favourite shots from Wednesday evening (15th) of the beautiful venue and fabulously enthusiastic audience.
The town itself has beautiful winding streets filled with small shops and cafes:

Overall, Norway has been an unforgettable experience and incredibly successful break in tour. We’ve had a great time working with all the venues and entertaining the friendly and fun loving Norwegian audiences and look forward to returning for more Faulty Fun at the end of the year!

This week we hit yet another Faulty Towers milestone with our Norway debut, starting in Teaterfabrikken in the beautiful town of Ålesund.
Surrounded by fjords and the high peaks of the Sunnmøre Alps, Ålesund is a sea port that is noted for its unique concentration of Art Nouveau architecture. In 1904 the town – built largely of wood – was the scene of a great fire in which most buildings were destroyed during the night, and the population had to leave the town with only a few minutes’ notice. Now the town is characterised by it’s colourful buildings and Art Nouveau style buildings which are a dream to photograph! Here are some of our photos from the tour.

Teaterfabrikken is a beautiful quirky venue, set in an old fish oil factory building by the sea with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Keep up to date with their other events:
If you missed the Faulty’s in Ålesund, you can catch us in Oslo or Stavanger this week, AND we will be back for second Norway tour in October! Sign up to our newsletter if you want to be the first to hear about tickets!
In the mean time, look out for our next update on the Norway Debut Part 2: Oslo!
After finishing our Netherlands tour last week, we have spent a great three nights at the Cultuurcentrum Muze in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium this week. Every evening was a sell out, with a fantastic atmosphere, super friendly staff and wonderfully decorated tables that Sybil adored! (They matched her outfit).
Dining tables, Side of the Cultuurcentrum cafe and great hall, Muze Cafe veranda, Pre-dinner drinks bar, Quirky decor in the artiestenfoyer, Cultuurcentrum entrance.

Sybil Fawlty’s style stands out in the history of the British sit-com as unique and memorable. Combined with her barmy but beautifully arranged bouffant, and her distinctive diction, she instantly recognisable in the UK and world-wide, even over 30 years on.
If you follow us on Pinterest you may have already noticed that we have a whole board in homage to Sybil’s superb style, filled with more clips from the Fawlty Towers TV series and images of beautiful, handmade clothing that can be bought online through websites such as Etsy.
The great thing about Sybil Fawlty’s huge variety of outfits across the series is that she has provided a wealth of inspiration for our very own Sybils, who each have their own individual take on the character’s fashion sense.
Here are a few of our favourites from recent tours:
Karina Garnet (left) at Downpatrick, Ireland, Donna Gray (centre) at Charing Cross, London and Amanda McKay (right) at Fringe World Perth, Australia.

This week’s tweet of the week is thanks to Pascale Arminjon (@lustlovelive) who was one of the hundreds of people who got to see the show in Barbados this week.
We totes ❤ Manuel too (but don’t tell Basil) and by the sounds of it, Manuel totes ❤s Barbados! Can he come back, please?
We had a great run at the Fringe World Perth this year, here are some action snaps taken by Dr Tony Tropiano of Amanda McKay (Sybil), Kevin Whittle (Basil) and Geoffrey Reczek (Manuel).
