The Fast Show legend Paul Whitehouse is set to reprise his West End role.

Stick a pony in your pocket, fetch the suitcase from the van and embark on a journey back in time as Only Fools and Horses The Musical arrives at Liverpool Empire from Mon 9 Jun to Sat 21 Jun 2025.

Get ready for a hilarious romp through 1989 Peckham, where Del Boy is on the lookout for love, Rodney and Cassandra are preparing for their big day, and even Trigger is gearing up for a date (with a person!).

Meanwhile, Boycie and Marlene give parenthood one final shot and Grandad takes stock of his life and decides the time has finally arrived to get his piles sorted.

Featuring musical contributions from the iconic Chas & Dave, as well as a fresh take on the beloved theme tune and a host of brand-new songs brimming with character and cockney charm, get ready for a right ol’ knees-up! Only Fools and Horses The Musical is a heartwarming celebration of traditional working-class London life in 1989 and the universal aspirations we all share.

Paul Whitehouse said:

“We had four amazing years in the West End playing to packed houses every night, so it’s an honour to take Only Fools on the road to Liverpool.

“I’m delighted to return to the role of Grandad once more – I’ve really missed him – and audiences will also get to see all the other hilarious characters they know and love from the television series live on stage at their local theatre. We can’t wait to see you. Mange Tout! Mange Tout!”
