Top comedian Bill Bailey has confirmed a new date for his show in Peterborough.

The star of Strictly Come Dancing, Black Books, and veteran of a dozen wildly successful comedy tours, Bill will be returning to the East of England Arena and Events Centre on May 4, as part of his "En Route to Normal" tour, which was postponed during the pandemic. The show had to be cancelled twice due to COVID.

In this new show, Bill ponders the questions that this moment in history has thrown up, and tries to see a way through the strange unreality of our new world. Tracing lines through chaotic moments in history, Bill seeks out parallels where human resilience and our ability to endure have got us through times of strife.
