MONTY Python star and television globe-trotter Michael Palin has announced a new tour to celebrate the release of his book Erebus: The Story of A Ship.

The one-man stage show is at Salisbury’s City Hall on July 4. In the first part of the show, Palin brings to life the thrilling story of HMS Erebus, the tough little ship that took on the Antarctic and the Arctic in the 1840s, and which was the subject of his latest bestselling book.

And in the second half, he tells his own life story from Monty Python to Ripping Yarns and the many television travel series that have taken him all around the world, from the North Pole to North Korea.

Tickets are on sale now. Go to or call 01722 434434.
