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.

Absolutely fantastic, can't fault it. John Sullivan would be very proud.
Casting fab Well written Vibrant and generally great evenings entertainment.
Absolutely brilliant adaption,so many stories to tell which would have been impossible. Del Boy was spot on, grandad for me was the best interpretation with a special mention to Boyce who got the Boyce laugh spot on. At the end Uncle Albert appeared and he added something extra to the show. Rodney my wife and I agreed never ever got the voice or character but did dress like him. Overall a very enjoyable night. Thank you William Carter.
We love the sitcom and enjoyed the show a lot. I would like to a comment about the bizarre behaviour by one staff member. In the interval my partner walked around the corridors looking for the toilet. To explain: my partner does have a slightly wobbly walk. So this security chap (wire in ear, dark glasses et all) followed him for a while and then asked "How much have you had to drink?" My partner replied 'what do you want from me'.. it was all really strange. There was a female staff member as well who then said to her colleague to leave it, they both walked off and left us standing. How odd - what was that about?? Apart from the fact that we did not consume any alcohol, isn't it strange to be stopped and quizzed like that. The guy could have said 'Are you alright' or 'Can I help you with anything' .... But blurting out 'How much have you had to drink' like he was talking to his teenage son was simply ridiculous. It spoilt the second half for us a bit as we could not get the incident out of our minds.
Amazing nostalgia! Great fun, would recommend to any only fools and horses fan. Go ! Other wise you will regret it....you plonker!
Excellent, more than expected.
Absolute brilliant show - really enjoyed it!!
If you’re an OFAH fan or not, you’re in for a treat! The cast, performances and sets were spot on! Pucka! 👍🏻
Really enjoyed this show. Had a great time
Absolutely brilliant, thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was amazing and would reccomend i will be going again. Brilliant
A real treat. Great songs, laugh out loud gags and the actors are so great you forget about comparisons to the TV show within minutes. Highly highly recommended.
Brilliant show wanna go again
Went to see Only Fools & Horses at The Theatre Royal, Haymarket This theatre is very old, the gallery seating was excruciatingly uncomfortable which was problematic as for trying to enjoy the show. Many people around us were moaning about it. The only gallery seats that looked ok were the front ones & this was solely because they had leg room. The actual show started off well, some of the characters were almost true to the original cast from the show. The acting was good but I feel because Only Fools & Horses is such an iconic show it is impossible to make fans of the show believe they are watching the original Del, Rodney etc. Unfortunately there were also few laughs, the best part of the show was the cast singing the theme tune which got all the audience joining in. I read reviews die hard fans will love the show, I never found this to be the case.
Great show, very entertaining. Show so good we forgot about technical issues
Thought the show was contrived. The songs really didn’t have anything to do with the show, apart from Why Do Only Fools and Horses Work, which was excellent. It seemed that they picked the songs and tried to weave in a story. We didn’t stay for the second half.
Brilliant show, very funny . Grandad and Rodney simply fantastic . Songs worked well too really surprised a great night out .
Fantastic show, lovely Theatre seats were very comfortable and views were fairly good from upper circle B 5 & 6.
Was a fantastic show ... Funny and very well played out
Congratulations to cast and crew, all came together nicely. very quickly found yourself back in the trotter world with believable characters. Some stellar performances from Uncle Albert, grandad and Boycie not to mention Del & Rodders in fact cast should all be millionaires. It was a musical but it worked, just the right balance between classic one liners and east end knees up. A must see.
Fantastic venue, very welcoming. Didn't want it to end. Took our breath away! Thank you all for making it such a special and enjoyable evening. X
I Went with my Mum and Sister, we had a great night, loved the show, didn't want it to end. All the lead role cast were brilliant in the parts they played, especially Ryan, who played Rodney he's voice was exactly the same as original Rodney. Great singing too. And not forgetting the rest of the cast that played a small part, sometimes they do get forgotten about. They were great too. Was a good laugh too. Would definately recommend the show to friends. Well done to all cast.
Was a great show, very funny and perfect for only fools and horses fans.
Great rendition of the classic tv show. Loved all the way.
Saw the show last night and what a show! Brilliant entertainment from start to finish from Del Boy, Rodney and grandad etc.
Brilliant I recommend this
Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Thought grandad was brilliant.
We throughly enjoyed every min the show it was a Birthday present to my husband we had great seats in the stalls only downside was the rowdy group behind us ....too much alcohol I suspect
Excellent. Very well cast and great performance all round but especially by Rodney and Delboy. Laughed a lot and it brought back many happy memories of watching it on TV. Sorry to have missed Paul Whitehouse but understudy did well.
Excellent from start to end 😀
A show not to be missed. A thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish. With such large boots to fill the cast and crew do a fantastic job. The energy and atmosphere they create made it a day to remember. Many thanks to them all.
Excellent performance. It really captured the essence of the show. Laughed and cried all the way through!
I laughed from start to finish. Incorporated all the very best scenes from the tv series and was a joy to watch. Highly recommended, a must see show.
All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed this show & have recommended it to all my family & friends. Honestly could very happily go & watch it all over again. Have seen quite a few shows but never enjoyed 1 quite as much as this.
Amazing show. This definitely lived up to expectations.
I have always loved only fools and horses on the TV, but this theatre performance was far better than I thought it was going to be ! All the actors were superb , the music and he singing was wonderful , throughly enjoyed the show. The best west end show I have seen in years. Would recommend it to everybody !
Laughed from start to finish really enjoyed the show Excellent.Was in the gallery very good view but seats were very uncomfortable. Price of drinks outrageous go to theatre about 6 times a year and this theatre is the dearest I've been too £5.50 for half a pint
What a fantastic show, cleverly written and so well acted out the characters even sounded l like the real del boy & Rodney, will definitely go again before the show finishes.
Truly magnificent! Non stop laughter, taking us back to our youth. Happy days!!
Mais oui, Mais oui!! OMG We loved it! Laughed so hard. Joined in the singing and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Clever dialogue. Great performances. Have been raving about it to everyone we have been in contact with since leaving the Theatre. Must see it again before it finishes.
As long time fans of Fools and Horses, we didn’t quite know what to expect from a musical rendition. Thankfully the show more than lived up to the TV series, the songs fitted in perfectly, the laughs came thick and fast and the cast were excellent. A great night of entertainment. I’m sure I won’t be the first to say ‘lovely jubbly’.
A very enjoyable evening all the family loved it, highly recommended
Good cast good show. Well worth the trip enthusiasm from the stage is shared by a dedicated audience. A must do theatre trip
Au revoir, Fantastic show, being a huge IFAH fan I loved it, managing to get the classic lines & funny memories packed into the show, songs were great, acting of the characters was bang on, credit to OFAH & John Sullivan, I would have no probs going to see it again, BONJOUR
If your a lover of Only Fools and Horses then this show is a must. Absolutely fantastic great actors and actresses with great scenery. The storyline covers all the major topics ever that have made you laugh in the past. Brilliant !!! Not to be missed !!!
Excellent performance by all, very funny
Absolutely loved it.
Absolutely one of the best musicals I have seen on the West End, the cast are fabulous and they capture every iconic only fools moments! Going to take my husband, excuse to see it again!
