Mais ouis, mais ouis, the world may have changed a lot since 1981 when we first bid a jovial ‘au revoir’ to the Trotters of Peckham, but good ‘ol Del Boy, Rodney and the rest of the gang haven’t changed a bit... well, apart from the odd spontaneous bursting into song here, and the occasional dancing across the market, there.
The record-breaking and top-rated television series Only Fools and Horses undoubtedly holds a special place in the hearts of the British public. Now Jim Sullivan has teamed up with comedy giant Paul Whitehouse to adapt the iconic series into a brand-new, home-grown British Musical spectacular. Lovely Jubbly!
Book, Lyrics and Original Music by Paul Whitehouse & Jim Sullivan. Based on the programme ‘Only Fools and Horses’ written by John Sullivan. Additional music by John Sullivan & Chas Hodges. Directed by Caroline Jay Ranger.

Brilliant... loved it from the start, didn’t want it to end, actors were sensational. Would highly recommend.
We went to see only fools & horses last night & what a great show. The characters were amazing & brilliant in their roles. There is one guy who stood out for me he played around about 5 different parts & played them brilliantly. All in all we had a great time, I would really recommend this show.
The show was nowhere near as cheesy as I thought it would be - glad I booked for my mum, my sister and I to go and see it as we are all mega Only Fools and Horses fans. Only problem with the show itself was because we know the show so well, the gags used from the tv show we knew the punchline to! The main issue though was with the theatre seating. Granted I did not buy the most expensive seats (Gallery, I think), but Im 22 years old and I had back pain by half way through the show. Leg space is limited but it isnt helped buy the fact the seats are tiny! I could barely fit! The theatre seating needs to be updated ASAP.
Enjoyed show thought it was very well put together would have a bit more humour especially in the first half. Dell could have bit more of a geeser. But loved all the characters. Well done. Message from genuine cockneys.
This was brilliant! fantastic casts we laughed we cried! fab job done stuck to the originality of only fools probably one if not THE best show weve seen
We had a wonderful time the show was brilliant but the theatre was too hot .We were in the gallery and two ladies up there fainted .
Such a good show and so funny! Really really enjoyed it.
Well worth a watch!! Whitehouse is a genius
An enjoyable evening , great performance, good music . After the last song I thought there may be a singalong...the audience were certainly ready for it!!!
Second time I’ve seen this and it only gets better. Fantastic show and a must for all the family. 10/10
A great show enrapturing many great moments of the original show. Great actors and stage settings. Well worth a watch *****
Very well put together. The stars of the show were excellent. They played brilliant parts. Really enjoyed it x
Absolutely great, I wanna see it again. Loved. All the actors were superb, songs brilliant, story and how snippets of the tv series intwined fantastic. Scenery perfect. Unable to praise high enough. Well done to everyone and never lived with production. You all did an amazingly job Thank you Jayne
Fantastic evening and a true adaptation of the tv series. A good night out!
Great acting, songs and really enjoyed it all
Brilliant if you are a fan of the show. characters amazing, atmosphere good.
The show was great, but what is it that people can ignore the No phones, so many were looking at their phones and even recording. They are brightly lit so can be seen but nothing is done. We were up in the gallery so could see them all over the theatre. Then talking all through. If you dont want to watch, dont go.
Small cramped seating no air con was so uncomfortable and sticky Would not recommend
I would recommend the show to all fans of only fools the cast were brilliant, funny and the songs were great.
Absolutely brilliant, would watch it again. One little hiccup in the hospital scene but the ad libs were priceless
Fantastic not to be missed
great show loved every minute
Took my husband for his 50th and we loved every minute of it. A fabulous show - highly recommended!
If you are an Only Fools & Horses fan, don’t miss this absolutely brilliant stage show. Fantastic from start to finish.
This was fantastic. My partner and I very much enjoyed the show. The songs were clever and lovely to listen to. The actors worked very hard to be as true to the tv actors. We were both agreed that the man playing Rodney sounded almost identical. Couldnt fault the show at all. Well done. Would recommend to anyone of any age even if you havent followed the tv series.
More than I expected. What a fabulous show. Entertaining and funny. Would definitely watch it again. Great performance.
Bought tickets for my husband as a fan of the tv programme. Show was brilliant. Some parts of old storylines but with additions. A great show with lots of fun. Whole cast were brilliant. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Wasnt sure how they could do this as a musical but it totally works ... a real feel good show that was wonderfully acted out by the cast , superb cast and good stage props. If you are looking for a good night out then come and see only fools and horses, you won't be disappointed...
What a night!! Fantastic cast and top knotch actin. Wow Wow wow
The cast were amazing, fantastic show well worth a trip out to see it
Such a great feel good show! All characters are spot on.
Fantastic show, very funny as we hoped. The cast were amazing and the set was outstanding. I highly recommend going to watch the show.
Absolutely fantastic, one of the best shows.. I am struggling to find the words to give it the greatest review it deserves... loved it.
Excellent show. Very funny. Rodney was the star of the show
I would highly recommend this show to anyone who is a fan of the series
As a long time fan of OFAH, it was great to watch a live on stage musical tribute to the show, characters were fantastic, bearing in mind the characters were very difficult to try and mimic in the first place. Really enjoyed it, and so glad we went
Very funny and entertaining, my only disappointment was that Paul whitehouse wasn’t playing grandad
Being a big fan of the tv show of “Only Fools and Horses” we went to see the stage musical version at the Theatre Royal, we were hoping it was going to be just as good. It is a really fantastic show and completely captures the essence of the tv show, it’s a fast moving and very funny story. The original characters are well portrayed within the cast and if you close your eyes you can hear how good they all are, I could pick out our favourite, that would be an injustice to the whole production. I believe the original TV cast members would totally agree. The lyrics and melodies and musical scores were well produced and all sang wonderfully and in tune. Well done Paul Whitehouse and Co. The theatre itself…… is still in the old world…. nothing changed really since the heyday of the late 1800s, a wonderful experience with frescoes painted everywhere. The acoustics are wonderful, clear as a bell! Only downside it’s accessible access, improvements could be made, I know it’s difficult with the status of this iconic building and building regulations.
What an amazing show, singing was incredible and the actors played their parts beautifully, has so many laughs, would highly recommend this if your a fan.
Mu husband is a Only Fools and Horses fan and I brought these tickets as a present. Both him and myself loved it. Actors were amazing. It had the known comedy moments with a few new bits. Would definitely recommend.
Great trip down memory lane.
Absolutely fantastic casting....brilliant! X
A great line up of songs, antidotes from the TV series and music of the time. Mannerisms of the TV cast were emulated by the talented stage cast; we felt we had stepped back in time. Carefully noted moments from the TV show were cleverly put together in one evening. Wonderfully enjoyable night.
Lovely theatre , great show. Best night out for a long time.
Absolutely perfect show for all the family, just couldn't stop laughing 🤣🤣🤣
I purchased the tickets for a present for my parents. They absolutely loved the show. My mum said she was crying with laughter.
