Some classics at 'Peter and Alice' on Monday. First I spotted two people eating a McFlurry in the circle (in fairness not disturbing anyone but still illustrates what is 'acceptable' at the theatre)


Why is eating a McFlurry not acceptable when eating an ice cream sold by the theatre is?? I don't see the distinction between the two.

Because us middle class theatre folk wouldn't be seen dead with a McFlurry of course, that is the ice cream of the commoner!

I think I actually said they weren't bothering anyone. It just illustrates the range of 'it's ok to bring anything in to eat' someone also had a take away coffee with them, not really a problem but a shift in 'what's acceptable'. I do draw the line at the pizza I saw someone eating at the WMC in Cardiff a few months back though.

I'm also probably pretty far from 'Middle class' myself just for the record....

Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Haha. Let's start a protest movement! Sure Dame Judi wouldn't have approved either!

New on this forum so this might have already been said but, whilst I'm not necessarily condoning people bringing their own food into theatres, if theatres didn't charge so much for food/drinks then people might not feel the need to bring their own in? Just a thought...
Love going to the theatre, London has so much to offer! Launched www.livetheatre.co in December 2012.

There should be no food at the theatre regardless of where you buy it. It's not beyond the realms of possibility to go for 2.5hrs without food. Eat before you go to the theatre or eat after, not during. I don't care if it's a McFlurry, theatre bought ice cream or a picnic (as per a tweet of mine from long past) it's really NOT necessary.  Heck I love my food but I can manage a few hours without it.

Oh don't be silly, anyone who has used the BBC class calculator knows there isn't such a thing as upper class anymore! :P
