The League Of Gentlemen UK tour coming to Edinburgh Playhouse

Cult comedy The League Of Gentlemen have announced details of a huge UK tour for 2018 – including a visit to the Edinburgh Playhouse next summer.

The hit sketch show from the 1990s is set to return to screens next week, and now it will also be hitting the road again.

“The League of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all,” they said in a statement.

“We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country.”

They added: “Plus we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show so we thought why not? Something to do isn’t it?”
