About the Only Fools and Horses Musical

Get ready to hear 20 original songs - wistful, witty and downright hilarious - as Del Boy looks for love at a dating agency, Rodney is preparing for married life with Cassandra, and Boycie and Marlene struggle to get pregnant. And as always, the Trotter brothers have time for a catchup with Grandad and a lark around Peckham in the classic yellow Reliant Regal.

Alongside some brand new stories, you can enjoy the best moments from the sitcom recreated live on stage, and catchphrases including “you plonker!” and “this time next year, we’ll be millionaires” are ready to make you laugh out loud all over again.

The Nation’s Favourite Sitcom On Stage

Only Fools and Horses was voted Britain's best sitcom in a 2004 poll, and time hasn’t changed our love for the Trotters of Peckham. It has inspired spin-offs The Green Green Grass and Rock and Chips, and some of its sketches remain the most quoted ever including Del Boy’s tumble through the bar, the infamous chandelier accident, and Batman and Robin.

This hit musical adaptation first opened in the West End in February 2019, where it played at Theatre Royal Haymarket Only Fools and Horses the Musical was confirmed to be making its way up West as a brand new musical in October 2018 and opened to huge audience and critical acclaim in February 2019. After more than 1000 performances, it closed in April 2023, but nothing can keep the Trotters away from London for long… so it’s settling into a new home out West for a limited season.

Who wrote Only Fools and Horses the Musical?

Only Fools and Horses the Musical keeps it in the family, with the sitcom's creator John Sullivan’s son, Jim Sullivan, co-writing the book with comedian Paul Whitehouse. Whitehouse also starred as Grandad in the West End production to great acclaim.

Music and lyrics are by Sullivan, Whitehouse, and Chas Hodges from Chas & Dave, who were also the writers of the television show's iconic theme tune. Songs in the musical, including "Not Now Grandad", "Mange Tout", "This Time Next Year" and "Lovely Day" are the perfect mix of cheeky, chirpy and irresistibly hummable. You’ll also enjoy the show’s two theme tunes performed live as part of a show-stopper full cast number that can only be described as pukka!
