Roll up, roll up, to see pop legend David Essex star in a new tour of his hit musical, All The Fun of the Fair.

The production, inspired by David’s album of the same name, is set in the exciting world of an East End funfair and will be visiting Nottingham and Sheffield as part of a major tour.

David has created a rollercoaster ride of a musical, underscored by a helter-skelter of his hits such as Hold Me Close, Gonna Make You A Star, Rock On and Silver Dream Machine.

The star put his London accent to good use when he played loveable rogue Eddie Moon in EastEnders last year,
