Michael Palin: The Thirty Years Tour
  • UK Regional & Tours

The Thirty Years Tour is a brand new stage show in which Michael Palin, aided and abetted by a rich and often rare archive of film, video, photos and recordings, looks back over three decades of his diaries, to mark the paperback publication of the latest volume, Travelling To Work " Diaries 1988 to 1998. From the end of the 1960s when his first child and a new series called Monty Pythons Flying Circus took their first faltering steps, to the end of a century in which Python had become the most influential comedy team in the world and Palin a hugely successful television traveller, his career is a celebration of diversity " of Ripping Yarns and Railway Journeys, of films like Time Bandits, Brazil, A Fish Called Wanda and A Private Function, of award-winning TV dramas like GBH, of novels, a West End play and even an appearance in an American courtroom to defend Monty Python.

Michael is as forthright about failure as he is baffled by success. In this two part show Michael shares with the audience the often hilarious, always honest and occasionally downright uncomfortable experiences of an ever-changing life.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
