Only Fools and Horses the musical will be coming to Manchester as part of its UK tour. Beloved characters Del Boy, Rodney, Grandad, Cassandra and more will be hitting the road following the show’s successful four-year-run in London’s West End.

The musical will be at the Manchester Opera House from November 11- 16, and November 18 -23. Tickets are already on sale for the show, which sold out in the West End.

Based on John Sullivan’s legendary record-breaking television show, it features material from one of Britain’s best-loved comedies. It features a script and original score written by John’s son, Jim Sullivan, and comedy giant Paul Whitehouse.

Audiences can expect all the familiar faces from the show reimagined on stage with an ingenious script and 20 hilarious songs. Directed by the originating West End director Caroline Jay Ranger, the tour kicks off in Bromley in September 2024 and then travels to over 30 towns and cities up and down the country, before culminating in Dublin at the end of June 2025.

Paul Whitehouse 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!”

Tickets are on sale now for the Manchester run with prices starting from £13 and can be bought on the ATG website here and on Ticketmaster.
