The Trotters are coming to York. Lovely Jubbly!

The smash hit stage musical version of Only Fools and Horses is going on tour, following a record-breaking sold-out four-year run in London’s West End.

Del Boy, Rodney, Grandad, Cassandra, Raquel, Boycie, Marlene, Trigger, Denzil and the rest of the gang will be arriving at York’s Grand Opera House for a six-day run next October – and tickets are already on sale.

Based on John Sullivan’s legendary television show, the critically acclaimed stage musical spectacular - which played over 1,000 performances at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket - features cherished material from Britain’s best loved TV series.

With a script and original score written by John’s son, Jim Sullivan, and comedian Paul Whitehouse, the show aims to give theatre audiences the chances to get reacquainted with Britain’s most lovable rogues.

Directed by the originating West End director Caroline Jay Ranger, the tour kicks off in Bromley in September 2024 and then travels to more than 30 towns and cities up and down the country.
