In pictures: On the set at Monty Python Live (mostly)

Last week we were lucky enough to be invited down to a film studio in West London for a sneak peek at the set of Monty Python’s forthcoming live shows.

During our visit, we got the chance to try out some of the props, were given a tour of the huge stage and were taken backstage to see how the production will come together.

Check out photos of the set below:

With over 60 characters to play, there’s going to be a lot of costume changes.

The Pythons will play a run of dates at the O2 Arena, London, starting July 1 – full details and tickets are here.
