Only Fools and Horses the Musical tickets

Only Fools and Horses the Musical swaps Peckham for the West End

If you’re after some good old fashioned market mishaps and dodgy dealings, Only Fools and Horses tickets will hit the spot! Join Del Boy, Rodney and Grandad in the comedy series’ cushty musical makeover at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Bringing the nation's best-loved sitcom to the stage

Only Fools and Horses was voted Britain's best sitcom in a 2004 poll, and the intervening years haven't lessened our love of Peckham's most famous family. 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.

The original television show first aired in 1981, running for seven series and 16 Christmas specials. Its most popular secondary characters also inspired spin-offs The Green Green Grass and Rock and Chips. Some of Only Fools and Horses' most quotable and side-splitting sketches include Del Boy falling through the bar, Del Boy and Rodney dressing up as Batman and Robin, and the infamous chandelier debacle - a scene that had to be completed in one take due to the size and cost of the prop!

Audiences can expect to hear 20 original songs ranging from the wistful to the downright hilarious in Only Fools and Horses the Musical, as Del Boy searches for love at a dating agency, Rodney looks forward to marital bliss with Cassandra, and Boycie and Marlene struggle to conceive. Amongst all this, the brothers still have time to cavort around Peckham in the classic yellow Reliant Regal.

What makes the Only Fools and Horses musical such a pukka night out?

The Trotters of Peckham are back in business at Theatre Royal Haymarket, with a few new song and dance numbers under their belts as we follow Del Boy, Rodney, and Grandad through the ups and downs of working class London life, with all of the show's most iconic characters appearing including bickering couple Boycie and Marlene and hilariously slow on the uptake family friend, Trigger.

Alongside some brand new stories, super-fans of the beloved sitcom will revel in seeing some of its most memorable moments recreated live on stage, with catchphrases including "this time next year, we'll be millionaires!" and "you plonker!" guaranteeing laughs a-plenty.

Only Fools and Horses the Musicalis a hit with audiences and critics alike, and the Evening Standard hailed it "an unashamedly British night out" that revels in its London setting. The rich world of the TV show is faithfully brought to life with uncanny costumes and set designs taking us from the Trotters' flat in Mandela House to the pubs, markets and wheeler-dealer hotspots of South London.

Who wrote Only Fools and Horses the Musical?

Only Fools and Horses the Musical boasts a close family connection, with the sitcom's creator John Sullivan’s son, Jim Sullivan, co-writing the book with comedian Paul Whitehouse. Whitehouse also starred as Grandad to great acclaim in the West End production when it premiered back in 2019.

Music and lyrics are by Sullivan, Whitehouse, and Chas Hodges from 'rockney' duo Chas n Dave, who were also the writers of the television show's instantly recognisable theme tune. Songs in the Only Fools and Horses musical mix the cheeky humour and one-liners from the sitcom into hummable numbers including "Not Now Grandad", "Mange Tout", "This Time Next Year" and "Lovely Day".

You'll also get to enjoy both of the show's theme tunes performed live, as they're combined into a show-stopping full cast number which raises the roof (and gently shakes the chandeliers) of the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Who is in the Only Fools and Horses musical cast?

The current Only Fools and Horses London cast includes Tom Bennett as loveable rogue Del Boy, Ryan Hutton as hopelessly pessimistic Rodney, Les Dennis as Grandad, Ashleigh Gray as Raquel, Pippa Duffy as Cassandra, Jeff Nicholson as Boycie, Samantha Lane as Marlene, and Peter Baker as Trigger.

Tom Bennett and Ryan Hutton have played the Trotter brothers since Only Fools and Horses the Musical opened, with audiences loving their uncanny takes on the characters made famous by David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst.

How long is Only Fools and Horses the Musical?

The Only Fools and Horses musical takes all the best bits of the sitcom's 64 episodes and packs them into 2 hours and 30 minutes of singing, dancing and laugh-out-loud escapades in the heart of the West End.

Fantastic show, with a huge & very well deserved round of applause at the end. Everyone left on a real high, even my children, that knew nothing of the original OF&H were laughing and smiling the whole way through!

Great set design, funny show just like the TV sitcom, great value - I got my ticket for £13 on a Tuesday evening. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to fans of the programme. If you’ve not seen it before nor heard of it and aren’t from the UK, you may not necessarily understand it - East End slang features a fair bit. I caught the production with Les Dennis as Grandad and he was great as were the entire cast.

This musical is based on the comedy series that mainly ran from 1981-1991 (although Christmas specials took the run to 2003), which starred both David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst in the lead roles as the infamous Trotter brothers Derek “Del Boy” and Rodney, who live in Peckham, London. The stage show features all the much loved main and supporting cast characters, but includes the nefarious Driscoll Brothers, who only appeared in one episode. It also takes iconic moments from the series (the falling chandelier, Del Boy falling through the bar, and Raquel’s stripagram reveal to name a few), then stitches them all together with some new material, to form the storyline centred around Rodney’s impending marriage to Cassandra. The cast do a superb job of taking me back to my youth; to my pre-teen and teenage years, sitting with the family roaring with laughter. Each cast member brings their own brilliance to their role, provoking personal memories of the show for me. However, the roles of both Rodney and Boycie were particularly spot-on with the originals. A special mention has to be given to Danny Lane, who was a brilliant scene stealer, playing several original characters. Being a musical, I was intrigued how such an iconic show could include any musical numbers without it becoming a parody. It was a revelation, and a real testament to the powerhouse genius of Paul Whitehouse and Jim Sullivan. Aside from the title song, there were several numbers that stood out for me, and added to something special to the show: “The Girl”, Mange Tout”, “Bit Of A Sort”, “Marriage & Love” and “Gaze Into My Ball”. The staging, and costumes are near as possible to the original television show. The rotating stage is split into three sections: The Trotter’s living room, the pub/cafe interiors, and the marketplace/wedding shop. There were, at times, actors appearing on the upper bridge/walkway section which didn’t make sense as to why they were there in the scene.

The show was very good Ryan Hutton as Rodney was excellent. The difficulty with the show was there are so many iconic lines and moments that you cannot fit it into a 2 hour show so it seemed a little crammed.

This show is just so special! It is cleverly written and delivered by incredibly talented actors. There is a comforting warmth that just emanates from this production... the cast are not just performing a script, they bring the characters to life and make you feel a part of the story.

Great fun, especially if you're a fan of the show. A lot of the classic moments were included. Del Boy was very good, as was trigger and Boycie and one of the co-stars almost stole the show with his various, hilarious characters. Rodney sounded a bit like a Kiwi Frank Spencer initially which got better the longer it went on. As we were front row it was nice to be involved at times too. We expected Paul Whitehouse as Grandad before being replaced by Les Dennis, then found out he left the show in 2019. Oops. Overall we really enjoyed it and a good sing-song at the end. Recommended.
