The pub will have three TVs screening all the Python sketches, and serving themed cocktails - as well as a Norwegian Blue beer in honour of the famous dead parrot which featured in one of most famous sketches.
The pub's visiting band at the theme night, rock cover group Replica, will also throw in some Python songs.
There are quizzes, such as a treasure hunt for Python related props around the bars, and the offer of free Spam egg and chips to 'all Vikings.'
