Based on John Sullivan's legendary record-breaking television show, this critically acclaimed home-grown musical spectacular - which played over 1,000 performances at London's Theatre Royal Haymarket - 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.

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've 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!
