Hit West End show Only Fools And Horses – The Musical is heading out on tour in 2024 and will be coming to Southampton in 2025.

Based on John Sullivan’s legendary record-breaking television show, the musical comedy played over 1,000 performances at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket – completing its four-year run earlier this year on April 29th.

The tour kicks off in Bromley in September 2024 and will be at the Southampton Mayflower Theatre from March 3rd to 8th 2025. It then travels to over 30 towns and cities up and down the country, before culminating in Dublin at the end of June 2025. The extensive UK tour will also see the musical return to London over the 2024 festive period playing at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo from December 17th 2024 to January 5th 2025.

Paul Whitehouse, who co-wrote the musical with Jim Sullivan and played Grandad in the West End version, said: “Following four amazing years in the West End, I’m thrilled we are announcing today that Only Fools and Horses The Musical is going on tour.

“I’ve long been asked by many fans when this might happen, so I’m delighted to confirm that the show will be coming to a theatre near you from September next year. All of the characters we know and love from the Only Fools television series will be live on stage, as we take Peckham on the road! Bonnet de douche!”

Casting for the UK & Dublin tour is yet to be announced. You can book tickets here: onlyfoolsonstage.com
