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.

Great show for people who appreciate the history.
The most entertaining and uplifting show we have seen for a long time. Brilliant cast. A must see for all fools and horses fans
For thise that grew up watching the tv series thisbis a must. We thoroughly enjoyed it, actors played the characters really well and loved all of the references that they threw in along the way. Would thoroughly recommend...
I've got to say I booked this for my partners 30th as he loves the show. It's never really been my favourite but I can honestly say I enjoyed every single minute. Absolutely outstanding. Very funny. I would definitely go again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend
Very cringeworthy show. Didn’t enjoy it and I don’t think it translates well to a stage show. Uncle Albert was brilliant. Apart from that, poor with odd design choices (set and design of story). Not funny to be honest.
Loved it, the actors portray the characters very well. I kept laughing at random silly points just from a 1-liner or something I noticed on stage. Well done!
i thought it was a fantastic play i have now been twice to see it and might go again as i enjoyed it so much
I bought these tickets for my parents and they had the most fantastic evening. My father has watched all the series over and over again and he said the stage show was just as fabulous. They said they have never laughed so much and loved the joining in of singing all the songs.
Loved it can not wait to see it once more.
We decided to try something different as a musical...And we absolutely loved it. Laughed, cried and felt like we were amongst friends. A must for any 'only fools' fans.
Brilliant shoe really funny from start to finish would recommend to friends and family cast and crew were amazing thank you very much
It is very easy to get immersed in this show, the characters and references back to some of the highlights of this hit TV show make it easy to forget that you are not watching the original actors. Think about your favourite moments in Only Fools and Horses and sit back and wait for those one liners to hit you one after the other
Brilliant comedy all the classic sayings ! Really well put together show and the characters were very similar amazing
Excellent evening really enjoyed the show
Best west end musical ever! Love it.
So good to see it come to life. The humour is just good old fashioned laughs. Definitely worth seeing for any fan
This was an utterly fantastic take-off from the TV series. Every character was well cast, every aspect of the TV series was incorporated. It was difficult not to think that Del was David Jason and the rest of the cast followed suit. If you want taking out of yourself and need to enjoy a west end show, then this is the one. What a clever scriptwriter John Sullivan was. Fantastic.
This show was absolutely fantastic the cast were amazing and the storyline was a very clever retelling and update on the original plot lines and iconic moments. Lots and lots of good laughs as well as pathos which was an integral part of the writing of the original series. I was tearful by close of curtain but in a good way. It had taken me right back to happy times around the tv (with my now late) mum and dad. Wonderful memories and a wonderful matinee experience.
Totally enjoyable for those who remember. I hope it appeals to younger generations too.
It has all the best of Only Fools and Horses, with the one liners and gaffs all the way through the musical performance. A wonderful night of humour and musicality. A must for all fans
Absolutely Brilliant! You would think you were sitting in the Peckham flat from the 80s series, the acting was fantastic, we felt like we were part of the show, as at times it was very emotional to think of the old days when we were all that much younger! The music was what got the show going at diffrent stages of the show, and the last song was amazing! Top marks all round👌
Best thing I’ve ever seen in the theatre, hilarious and well thought out from start to end. Would recommend to anyone
Worth every penny
I grew up watching this sitcom and it was a family favourite. I went in expecting a few laughs but thought it might be hard to portray the show in a musical. Within the first 5 minutes I knew it was going to be good, and by the end that opinion changed to magnificent. The show managed to capture all the brilliant moments from the entire series that lasted over two decades, which I thought was pretty great. Tom Bennett who plays Del Boy did absolute justice to the role, he was fantastic and portrayed Del Boy brilliantly. His voice, mannerisms, overall demeanour was just like the iconic character. The others were great also like Grandad, Boycie, Cassandra and Marlene. I would definitely like to return to watch this show some time in the future. Had a great evening.
Good mixed on Music and Drama
Great show. Cast excellent. Iconic. Not to be missed if looking for a show while in London. Would definitely go see again.
Over the years I have attended many shows on London’s West End and this is by far the best I have attended to date. I would go so far as to say it is like watching the show live back when it was originally filmed with the added bonus of modern elements and the singing. The song selection is incredible and goes perfectly with the original plot. Easily a must see for any Only Fools fan or even someone who enjoys good comedy!
A really good laugh. My favourite was Rodney, a true talent. Nice to have an evening out and to hear so much laughter.
Excellent show, want to see it again, please tour and come to Manchester.
an excellent show.
Had all the iconic moments in a nutshell. Good voices and character likenesses to the original TV cast, great night out for fans of the series.
the production and performance was excellent but we did expect a few more belly laughs
Absolutely fantastic. Definitely recommend it
A brilliant evening. Very enjoyable, fast moving show bringing back great memories from the series.
The show was absolutely amazing and loved it The characters were absolutely amazing
This was a family occasion for us, a day out with my boys who grew up on OFAH. The show did not disappoint our expectations, it was brilliant! The cast were excellent and clearly love performing the show day in, day out. Well done all, we had a fabulous afternoon.
Brilliant show, great cast. Laughed all the way through, a must see for only fools and horses fans
Amazing cast performance!
What an absolutely fantastic evening watching fools and horses. Great character's and story.....we loved it
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant... very funny, great acting... all round entertainment 😭😭😭
This was a good show, but my expectations may have been too high. I thought I would come out with my sides hurting Though laughter. That wasn’t the case. All in all, a good show.
The show is full of energy and laughter good couple of hour release from a tough world. Go you won’t be disappointed
This show was absolutely hilarious and I laughed the whole way through and even had a laugh with my friend afterwards. All the actors and actresses were amazing and had all their characters nailed down to the smallest detail like facial expressions. I would come and see this again and would recommend this show to everyone.
Great Fun Great Cast seen it about 8 times now and will B going again. Fantastic Old School Humour
Brilliant from.start to finish. All the characters are spot on. The energy del boy has is unbelievable. Cant recommend this show enough. Will defo see again
Absolutely loved the show! The whole cast were brilliant. We laughed loads. We were gutted when it was over.
Both my Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance, a well worked out plot to get all those great bits of the series covered, the actors had the characters nailed, some extra oneliners aided the laughs. We had restricted view seats but it did not detract from our experience. If you can, go you will definitely have a good laugh. Andy P
From start to finish we found the show to be highly entertaining and funny encapsulating the brilliant series of this classic comedy We are not generally fans of musicals but this was very enjoyable and the songs blended into the story very well Exiting the theatre all we heard was people commenting on how great the show was and we would like to mirror those comments ...we went for my sons birthday as he is a massive OFAH fan and he was laughing all the time and has told all of his friends to watch I’m this show We had a nice “steak meal” before the show and the show was quite “ a sort “ very well done ....
