The League of Gentlemen are back – and they’re going on the road with a visit to the Echo Arena this weekend.
The cult TV series returned to the small screen with three special shows ahead of Christmas 2017.
And Reece Shearsmith, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Jeremy Dyson are bringing Royston Vasey to Liverpool on September 16 as part of a UK tour.
In a joint statement the four said: “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.
“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.
“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?”
The League of Gentlemen comedy troupe was formed in 1995, and the show, which follows the lives of the bizarre characters who populate Royston Vasey, a fictional town in the North of England, was first screened on the BBC in 1999.
The series was filmed around the fringes of Manchester, including Hadfield, Mottram, the Hope Valley, and Bacup.
