All The Fun Of The Fair is a roller coaster ride of a musical, underscored by a helter-skelter of David Essex hits and album favourites.

All The Fun Of The Fair, which is inspired by Essex’s debut album, finds the pop and musical theatre star playing fun fair owner Levi Lee, the recently widowed father of a rebellious teenage son. Danger and mysticism lurk in the future, as predicted by the gypsy fortune teller who is in love with Levi.

All The Fun Of The Fair is a moving and contemporary story with a heartbreaking twist, which reaches out to every parent and anyone who has ever been torn in love. It features hits including Winter’s Tale, Gonna Make You A Star, Rock On and the title track.

Essex, who wrote All The Fun Of The Fair with Boogie Nights creator Jon Conway, is best known as a pop star, but has musical theatre credits including Godspell, Evita, Mutiny! and Footloose The Musical.

All The Fun Of The Fair plays in the West End following an extensive UK tour.
