The gloriously mad Worst Café tour

The gloriously mad Worst Café tour

Rumour has it that the Worst Café in the World will be shadily opening up in 4 towns across Northern Ireland in March. After a sold out run at the Belfast International Arts Festival, the Worst Café (anything but a café..) will mysteriously appear at 4 top-secret locations. Keep an ear to the ground as the staff sneak their way (perhaps) into your town.

Masquerading as seafront café in Portstewart, Worst Café in the World will reappear in Armagh, followed by a covert operation into Bangor and lastly, will infiltrate Lisburn.

If you’re reading this, it means you’ve been chosen to take part in the most ambitious event in the café’s history. But we’re not sure we can trust you yet, so if you want the intel on the café’s top-secret locations, secure your place, and wait for your instructions…

Move fast though – tickets didn’t wait around last time. And remember, there’s no food, not a latte in sight, and nothing and no-one is quite what they seem.

To book your table in the Worst Café in the World, take a peek at the information below. But make sure there’s no one looking over your shoulder first…
