What’s Only Fools and Horses The Musical about?
Stick a pony in your pocket – Britain’s favourite family is back! The world may have changed a lot since this lovely jubbly show hit the West End in 2019 - let alone since the Trotters first arrived in Peckham in 1981. But Del Boy, Rodney and the rest of the gang haven’t changed a bit…well, aside from the odd spontaneous bursting into song and tripping the light fantastic through Peckham Market!
The musical begins in reassuringly familiar territory, with Del Boy promising Rodney ‘This time next year, we’ll be millionaires.’ As soon as you hear that, you know we’re in for a treat! The show maintains perfect comedy timing throughout, with a flurry of classic catchphrases, quotes and familiar faces. All your favourite characters feature: Marlene and Boycie, Trigger, Mickey and Denzil all make an appearance in the Nags Head. Of course, the evening’s undoubted star turn is from Del Boy’s beaten-up Reliant, which steals the show every time!
Voted the number 1 British sitcom of all time by BBC viewers in a 2003 poll (beating Blackadder and the Vicar of Dibley into second and third place), this top-rated TV series holds a special place in the nation’s heart. Now, Jim Sullivan has teamed up with giant of comedy Paul Whitehouse to turn this iconic series into a British-born, gold-plated spectacular Musical Comedy. Pukka! With an original score by Sullivan and Whitehouse and additional music by John Sullivan & Chas Hodges (of Chas & Dave fame), tickets are selling fast! So don’t be a plonker, book today!

Top 10 classic Only Fools and Horses moments 19 October, 2018
A wonderful trip through Only Fools and Horses nostalgia
Really great adaptation of original sitcom , reinacted all the classic moments , very funny .
Started a little slow,but worth sticking with it,ended up being a brilliant show, i am hoping to see it again when Joe Pasquale returns.
It was a fantastic show all 4 of us had a great evening
Watched every episode over the years and this show is as good as the real thing. Absolutely fantastic
Absolutely brilliant, Paul played grandad well but uncle Albert a lot better had me in stitches as it was a complete double act of him
Fantastic little theatre and wonderful show. We had a great time.
Loved the show with all actors very much in character of their part. Had all the aspects of the TV series that we loved in the one show - brilliant. Finally all actors genuinely seemed to be enjoying themselves. Definitely one to watch
Great show just what we needed for a fun night out!
Really funny show . Actors had the characters to a tee.
Such a great show, funny, uplifting, and brilliantly done - just loved it!
We were really looking forward to see this show but unfortunately we were unable to attend due to the advice about corona virus and to isolate if you had a cough. The box office was very unhelpful and not understanding Of these special circumstances. We are very disappointed. We were looking for a postponement not a cancellation. I hope this move does not affect them greatly in the long term
Absolutely amazing. Very funny from start to finish. Captured the complete essence of the original series. The music was fantastic with extremely good voices, very good musical direction. Loved every minute of the show
Fantastic show. Laughed so much. A real feel-good show which provided us with a great night out. Was not impressed with theatre. Ridiculous anount of steps to get anywhere, needs redecorating and has the most uncomfortable seats I have ever experienced. Wouldn't go back.
Such a great show, would highly recommend it!!
I took my partner for his 60th birthday . He said it was the best birthday present ever. I thought the cast were brilliant, it was funny the music fantastic, can't say enough good things, telling everyone to go. Thank you for such a brilliant show. 😁
Really enjoyed the musical version of Britain’s best ever sit com in my opinion!! All the classic scenes were played out interspersed with some funny songs as well! Anyone that loves only fools like I do must go and see this, the cast were all fantastic! Brilliant
Absolutely fabulous ! From the start to the end !!! The set changes, cast, songs, storyline .... all perfect !!! Would highly recommend this show !! 5 star performances all round
This show was brilliant! True to the characters and storylines
Wow!! what a show, we laughed from start to finish we clapped, we sang along. everyone around us laughed, clapped and sang along what a night thank you..
Simply excellent! Captured all the best bits of the show.
From beginning to end the laughter never stop's, the cast were very accurately chosen to play their part, and they put their heart and soul into each character. Paul Whitehouse was great as Grandad, and Uncle Albert. We were fortunate to meet some of the cast after in a bar opposite the theatre, who were more than willing to sign a program for us. Highly recommend, if your a fan of the Program then you will love the Musical ! we will be going again!
What a fantastic show - I am not normally a fan of musicals but within 10 minutes of watching I was entranced with the characters and the sets. Brilliant.
Show was brilliant It captures so many fantastic memorable scenes from the TV show Laugh out Loud from start to finish A good ole cockney knees up!!!
Fantastic Show really had everybody laughing clapping lots of the best bits from the shows Del falling behind the bar Chandlier Police stripper the cafe. Singing and Dancing excellent highly recommend going to see it not to be missed what more can you add😅😅😅😅👏👏👏👍👍👍
Wonderful show, great entertainment, very funny. Captured the true spirit of the original TV shows. All the actors were superbly cast. Thoroughly recommended.
A fantastic fun filled production thoroughly enjoyed by us
Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Actors and actresses were all amazing. They were so like the originals that you couldn’t really tell they weren’t. We went for my sisters birthday and she laughed the whole way through, It was 200% amazing best Show we have seen!!!
Cast: Cushty Music: Cushty Script: Cushty One of the best musicals on the West End. It was an amazing show; Tom, Ryan and Paul were amazing! Oscar was OUTSTANDING! what a talented bunch of people! Can’t wait to see it again!
Very very funny all the characters worked hard all thru the 2 and a half hour show I must watch for any OFAH fan whilst in london would defo see again if in london.
Had a lovely day in London at show,really well done to all!!
Wonderful show . Very very funny and great acting.
Coming from a true no.1 collector fan... the way the scenes had been combined together was so clever. The actor playing Rodney, really did study his roll well. All the cast done great so so well. It really felt as if you was watching an episode. Uncle Albert was by far the highlight :) Overall amazing show. And would definitely pay to watch it again. Amazing :) 5* all the way :)
Really enjoyed the show .... needed cheering up and it certainly did they!
An excellent evening, very funny all the cast were exceptional. I would highly recommend it for an excellent evenings entertainment
Absolutely loved this show, I couldn’t get over how much like the original cast the actors were, every character was instantly recognisable. Such a fun show to watch. If you are a fan of the tv program then this is a must see show!
fantastic show. has all the favourites and used well. great acting . you dont have to have seen the show (is there anyone!) to enjoy. i would def go back. if you have a problem with heights please check your seating as the upper circle is a bit steep
The theatre is lovely. Lovely staff who show you to your seat and ensure you are happy. The show is brilliant, very funny and a real feel good vibe. The actors are versatile and do an amazing authentic job There is only a few toilets ...however if you time it right you don’t have to wait long
Absolutely brilliant , best show I have see in years
It was enjoyable because I love theatre I wouldn’t recommend this as first choice. Not as good as I expected. Must mention I didn’t realise it was a musical. would not see again. But that’s only down to personal choice.. the performers were very good slick and professional
Good laugh out loud show bringing all our favourite characters back to life. Pays many nods to the tv series but not predictable. Good night out.
Very good performance by all involved. Actors who played Del Boy & Boycie particularly stood out. It was a funny collection of all the good bits of OFAH across all series, with all the hilarious lines added in for good measure. Well worth a watch!
An absolute cracking show, funny and witty just like the tv shows. Some of the actors even sounded and looked like the proper tv show actors Boycie, Marlene, and Rodney were spot on.
Great cast and crew, fabulously funny, real feel good factor play. Must see.
We were unable to see the show. Tickets booked were to celebrate my husbands 70 th Birthday. We were concerned to be in an enclosed space with possible Coronavirus carriers. We have a baby granddaughter who has a weak immmune system due to having Epilepsy and Hypotonia. She’s obviously at high risk as she has just come home from hospital after suffering another chest infection. I am sure the show was fantastic we have heard great things from friends.
Got the Characters off to a T !! Just the right amount of everything in there well impressed!! V10 V11 seats perfect, took me old man he Thoroughly enjoyed it
Anyone that has seen only fools and horses will love this. If you close your eyes you think the rear characters are on stage. Hilarious, all the best moments recaptured. Brilliantly adapted to stage. A wonderful evening.
