May I Have The Pleasure…? (The Arches Presents Adrian Howells)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

It’s always the best man, never the groom for Adrian Howells who – in this interactive fabricated wedding reception, where the audience sit around on tables decorated with helium balloons and a stacked cake – takes us through the more than 60 weddings he has attended. Along the way we are invited to view Adrian’s old wedding movies, give our thoughts on what makes the ultimate wedding reception, and one person from each table is even invited to slow dance with Adrian under the spinning disco ball. Like the best weddings, by the end of the night I found myself dancing with strangers, sipping bubbly, eating a slice of cake, and wishing the night would never end.

Traverse at The Point Hotel Conference Centre, 15 – 28 Aug (not 20, 25, 26), times vary, £6.00 – £19.00, fpp279.
