Earlier this month, the very exciting news that Only Fools And Horses will be returning in musical form next year was announced. And today, we’ve got even more news about Del Boy and the crew… Lovely Jubbly.

The brand-new musical has been written by Paul and Jim Sullivan – the son of the TV show’s creator and writer John Sullivan as we expect it to be cushty.
It will feature musical contributions from beloved duo Chas n Dave. Plus, you’ll hear the iconic theme tunes like never before. Expect an array of comic songs full of character and cockney charm.
