Based on the classic film Monty Python And The Holy Grail, the hilarious comedy musical Monty Python’s Spamalot tells the legendary story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as they journey through England in search of the holy grail. But this is not the legendary monarch and valiant team you might remember from stories of yore; though this tale stars Sir Lancelot, Sir Bedevere and the Lady Of The Lake, it also features insulting Frenchmen, inventive use of coconuts, a homicidal rabbit and the infamous Knights who say Ni.

Created by original Python member Eric Idle and John Du Prez, Monty Python’s Spamalot features the songs He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights Of The Round Table, Find Your Grail and the well known Python favourite Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
