DULOG prepare for Gala Theatre production of Spamalot
Durham University students are gearing up to put on the Monty Python musical, Spamalot in The Gala Theatre from Tuesday 24 – Saturday 28 January.

Featuring a bevy of beautiful showgirls, cows and killer rabbits, not to mention some particularly noisy coconut shells, this musical is sure to provide a plethora of daft entertainment.
