Monty Python’s Spamalot is hitting a Weston-super-Mare stage for the first time.

The musical is based on Monty Python And The Holy Grail, and has been described as ‘raising silliness to an art form’.

The romp through medieval England is set in 932 AD where the kingdom is divided, and an extraordinary leader is rising to unite his troubled subjects.

Arthur, King of the Britons must fight an army of ridiculous foes, including The Knights of Ni, the French Taunter and the Black Knight.

Add that together with a large helping of spam, and audiences are in for an unforgettable evening.

The show has been put together by Weston Operatic Society, and will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, on October 26-29 at 7.30pm. There is also a 2.30pm matinee on October 29. Tickets, priced £16 for October 26 and the October 29 matinee, or £17.50 for the other performances, are available from 01934 645544 or
