MONTY Python and The Holy Grail made much use of locations in the Highlands, but next week brings a first chance for the north of Scotland to see the stage show incarnation of the comedy team’s take on King Arthur, Spamalot, thanks to local drama club The Florians.

Featuring new songs and new characters alongside favourites from the film such as the fearless Black Knight or shrubbery loving Knights Who Say Ni, musical comedy Spamalot has been a crowdpleasing hit on both the West End and Broadway.

With the show now released for amateur performance, The Florians were quick to give Highlanders the opportunity to see the show on home turf and transform their Bught Park theatre into King Arthur’s kingdom.

Spamalot runs from Tuesday September 6 to Saturday 10.
