About this event

The legendary Monty Python troupe’s first feature is a quest movie set in an almost historically accurate England, circa 932 A.D. Wise-cracking, irreverent and hilariously funny, Monty Python and the Holy Grail brings you laughter, coconut-halves and a much needed dose of anarchic daring-do.

Clad in medieval garb, King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his trusty servant Patsy (Terry Gilliam) seek knights to join the round table at Camelot. But it isn’t a simple process – as they find when they encounter constitutional-obsessed peasants, a Three-Headed Knight and a raft of other strange and bizarre characters along the way. Trotting the line between sublime comedy and the downright ridiculous, this endlessly quotable British comedy makes a welcome comeback to the big screen.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
