Spamalot, a riotous musical lovingly ripped off from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, is heading for Derbyshire.

The comedy is full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen.

Derby Theatre will host the show, written by Python legend Eric Idle, from April 17 to 21.

Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.

Spamalot was the winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, while it enjoyed a victorious West End run.

With comic tunes including Brave Sir Robin, We’re Knights of the Round Table and perennial favourite Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Spamalot audiences are sure to be dancing in the aisles. Grab your coconuts and gallop down to a venue near you to book your tickets today!

Tickets: £18.50 - £32.50, concessions available. To book tickets, call 01332 593939 or go to www.derbytheatre.co.uk/spamalot
