Rula Lenska headlines a packed programme at The Rotunda Theatre for Buxton Fringe 2018

In a varied and exciting programme of theatre, comedy and musicals Rula Lenska, one of the UK’s best-loved actresses, will be taking time off from her busy Coronation Street filming schedule to perform her one-woman show From Dzikow to Willesden Green. She is one of a number of talented performers appearing in the sky-blue geodesic dome popping up in the Pavilion Gardens once again this July for the Buxton Fringe.

Other shows include the hotly anticipated return of the impressionist James Hurn in a new Hancock’s Half Hour, which includes a rediscovered episode and two new ones written by James himself, Ross Ericson, who won best actor last year, with The Unknown Soldier, and the award-winning Kate Perry in her one-woman sketch show The Very Perry Show.

More comedy will be provided by The Big Fat Running Show, Cheaters: a play about infidelity, and the Rotunda’s very own comedy night, which will feature some of Edinburgh’s best comedians warming up for this year’s Edfringe.

There is even a show especially for the little ones - and the not so little ones – with multi award-winning musical comedian Jay Foreman’s Disgusting Songs for Revolting Children.

There is truly something for everyone this year, and if you buy your tickets before the 31st May you will be able to get them for a discounted price under the Rotunda’s early bird scheme. The Rotunda will also be running In For A Pound, a ‘Pay What You Will’ season, that showcases new writing and new work.
