King Arthur

  • Show Information

The Kings of Comedy, Le Navet Bete, return to the stage with a brand-new comedy for the ages. This hilarious retelling of the Arthurian legends, suitable for the whole family, will have audiences crying with laughter and become part of the legend themselves!

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.

After bringing their unique brand of electric comedy to record-breaking panto Robin Hood last year, the creators of Dracula: The Bloody Truth, Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers: A Comedy Adventure and A Christmas Carol are BACK on the Northcott stage for one week only!


British Theatre Guide on Robin Hood – ‘If you only see one show…this is it. Excellent.’

Reviews Hub on Dracula: The Bloody Truth – ‘Bloody brilliant!’ ★★★★★
