David Essex to take All the Fun of the Fair on UK tour
Date Posted: 22/08/11
David Essex's record breaking show All the Fun of the Fair will go on a UK tour this autumn.
The production, which has been viewed by those booking London hotels at the Garrick theatre, was nominated for the Best New West End Musical 2010 by What's On Stage.
It will enjoy a three-night run at Birmingham's New Alexandra Theatre between Friday 16th and Sunday 18th September, before moving on to Southend-on-Sea, Richmond and Edinburgh.
A host of other venues will be visited as the tour runs until mid-April 2012, with Manchester, Nottingham, Glasgow and Cardiff all playing host to the production.
In the show, Essex plays the role of funfair owner Levi Lee, who has recently been widowed and is left to look after a rebellious son.
The musical features a heart-breaking twist as predicted by a gypsy fortune teller who falls in love with Levi.
Recently, Essex, who has been starring in Eastenders, announced that he was leaving the show in order to re-focus on his music career.
