MONTY Python’s Spamalot will return to Manchester’s Opera House this month, following the huge success of the first national tour in 2010.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.

Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people.

The show has already won a Tony Award, and has been seen by more than 300,000 people. Marcus Brigstocke and Todd Carty will return as Arthur, King of the Britons, and Patsy, and will be joined by Bonnie Tyler as the Lady of the Lake.

Tickets cost £12 to £35, and can be booked via or by ringing 0844 871 3018.
