Monty Python’s Flying Circus is set to land at Chorley Little Theatre.

The long-awaited Monty Python Live (Mostly) re-union at the O2 in London on Sunday July 20 is just one of a series of live events beamed via satellite direct to the theatre’s big-screen with accompanying surround sound.

Likely to be the last time the surreal comics appear together, the concert will be shown live on the Sunday with a recording of the same show the night after. Tickets £15.

The Python show is just one of a series of events which will include plays from the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company as well as other one-offs.

The first will be A Small Family Business on Thursday, June 12.

Alan Ayckbourn’s riotous award winning exposure of entrepreneurial greed will be performed at the National Theatre, where it premiered in 1987.

Tickets £12, or as an introductory offer cinema season tickets and CADOS members/season ticket holders £8.
