Only Fools and Horses
3 – 8 March 2025
Stick a pony in your pocket – The Trotters are back and coming to a town near you! The smash hit show Only Fools and Horses The Musical – direct from a record-breaking four-year sold-out run-in London’s West End – featuring Del Boy, Rodney, Grandad, Cassandra, Raquel, Boycie, Marlene, Trigger, Denzil and Mickey Pearce.
Based on John Sullivan’s legendary television show, this critically acclaimed home-grown musical spectacular features cherished material from Britain’s best loved TV series. With a script and original score written by John’s son, Jim Sullivan, and comedy giant Paul Whitehouse, prepare to get reacquainted with Britain’s most lovable rogues and experience the classic comedy brought to life on stage through an ingenious script and 20 hilarious songs.
Fans and critics alike praised Only Fools and Horses The Musical in their droves during its triumphant West End run: The Sun awarded five stars, hailing it ‘One Del of a show!’; the Daily Mirror said it was ‘a treat for Trotter fans‘ in their five-star review. The Sunday Times bestowed four stars and remarked that ‘Only Fools is a blast from our wide-boy past. A hearty stage adaptation of the 1980s BBC television comedy‘. Evening Standard also awarded four stars, complimenting the ‘unashamedly British night out. A jubilant lovely jubbly!’. While the Daily Mail urged its readers to ‘raise a glass of Tittinger to Del Boy and Rodney as Only Fools and Horses storms the West End!’.
Join us as we take a trip back in time, where it’s all kicking off in Peckham. While the yuppie invasion of London is in full swing, love is in the air as Del Boy sets out on the rocky road to find his soul mate, Rodney and Cassandra prepare to say ‘I do’, and even Trigger is gearing up for a date (with a person!). Meanwhile, Boycie and Marlene give parenthood one final shot and Grandad takes stock of his life and decides the time has finally arrived to get his piles sorted.
With musical contributions from the iconic Chas & Dave, the beloved theme tune as you have never heard it before, and an array of brand-new songs full of character and cockney charm, you’re guaranteed to have a right ol’ knees-up! Only Fools and Horses The Musical is a feel-good family celebration of traditional working-class London life in 1989 and the aspirations we all share.
So don’t delay, get on the blower, and get a ticket for a truly cushty night out – only a 42 carat PLONKER would miss it!
