No autumn tour for Rising Damp

The touring production of hit 70s sitcom Rising Damp, which was to have reached Derby’s Assembly Rooms later in the year, will be not performed at the venue now.

The show’s producers have informed the venue that sadly they will be unable to tour in the autumn. Box office staff will be contacting those who have already bought tickets.

A Derby LIVE spokesman said: “We are disappointed as we were very much looking forward to bringing the production to Derby. Our programme and business team are currently looking at alternative events to fill the gap.”
