Sue Perkins at Buxton Opera House on September 14.

Her tour is heading to Buxton where fans will get the rare chance to enjoy an evening of

sparkling wit, great stories, a user’s guide to working with Mary Berry and the very best bits from her hilarious best-selling memoir Spectacles.

Sue is perhaps best known for being one quarter of double act Mel and Sue, where she plays the part of Mel. Together, the pair have bounced, shouted and gurned their way through countless hours of television, most memorably Light Lunch and its later counterpart, Late Lunch.

Over the years, Sue has worked on a wide range of solo projects, including documentaries on art, popular fiction and history.

In 2008 she appeared on the BBC show Maestro, culminating in her conducting at The Last Night of the Proms.

Sue is a regular contributor to Have I Got News For You, Just a Minute, QI and presents the quirky panel show Insert Name Here about famous people who share the same moniker.

And she presents the Great British Bake Off on BBC 1.

She has been crownedThe World’s Greatest Liar in a hard fought contest in Cumbria.

Sue Perkins Live! In Spectacles takes place at Buxton Opera House on September 14, at 7.30pm. Tickets £27.50. Call 01298 72190 or visit

Each ticket will include a copy of Sue’s new book (out in paperback on July 28 2016) and Sue will be signing copies after the show.
