Misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen… what’s not to love?

Spamalot is the stage production based on the hit TV show, Monty Python. Follow Kind Arthur and his motley crew of Round Table knights on an eventful mission to retrieve the Holy Grail. Will they make it? Will they fail at their, er, ridiculous mission? Join us 20 to the 24 March and find out.

Written by the Monty Python star Eric Idle, and with a score co-written by John DuPrez that includes Always Look On the Bright Side of Life, Spamalot won the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, and continues to enthuse audiences today.

A night of silliness and laughter awaits – onward trusty steed!


March is the month that we will officially begin our Performances for the Curious programme – and boy is it good!
