King Arthur

Without a doubt, one of the best comedic theatre performances we have seen in the last few years.


Camelot is in trouble. King Arthur knows that if he doesn’t turn things around, this civilisation will be forgotten, and be known as nothing more than a rather dull time in British history. But when three hapless squires approach him about changing that legacy… a legend is born.

Teaming up with one of UK theatre’s best comedy writers and directors, Olivier Award nominated John Nicholson (The Time Machine: A Comedy), award-winning funny men Le Navet Bete (The Three Musketeers, Treasure Island, Dracula: The Bloody Truth) are back with a brand-new laugh-out-loud show for the ages.

A comedy for the whole family, this hilarious retelling of the Arthurian legends will have audiences crying with laughter and become part of the legend themselves!

This show has been supported by Arts Council England and Landmark Theatres.

King Arthur was first performed on Thursday 21st September 2023 at the Queens Theatre, Barnstaple, Devon, UK.
