Dawn of a new era for French

Dawn French, the Queen of British comedy, is to bring her first ever solo tour, 30 Million Minutes, to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall, on Monday, October 13.

The award-winning actor, novelist and all-round very funny lady has written a new show based on her life and career. 

Consisting of various delights and riches, with the odd irksome tribulation thrown in, Dawn takes audiences through the various lessons life has taught her, and the things she knows for sure. 

Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for nosey parking and showing off, has driven her to grapple with the big stuff of life in public. 30 million minutes of life in fact; that’s how long she’s been alive.

It’s also worth coming if only to finally witness what size she actually is.

Can we believe the stolen images of so many women’s magazines? What is the truth? Is she so unfeasibly large that she can hardly live? Marvel at how one woman can mercilessly murder so much chocolate, and yet remain so curiously slim…

Since coming to fame in the early 80s as part of the Comic Strip Presents team, Dawn French has become a much-loved performer, as one half of the legendary double act French and Saunders, plus as the star of the likes of Murder Most Horrid and The Vicar Of Dibley.

Tickets to see her show, which starts at 7.30pm, are £35-£39.50. Call the box office for more details on 0115 989 5555.
