Tony award-winning Monty Python musical SPAMALOT will hit London's theatre district later this year (06).

The ERIC IDLE scripted show, which is based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, has thrilled audiences on Broadway since its opening last year (05) and will tour the US this year.

The musical sees a chorus line of dancing knights follow the legendary King Arthur on his quest for the Holy Grail.

It's first West End performance will be at The Palace Theatre on 2 October - tickets go on sale from 21 February.
