The League of Gentlemen will return to the stage later this year for their first UK and Ireland tour in over 12 years - including shows in Belfast and Dublin.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, March 15 at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets.

The critically acclaimed black comedy originally ran from 1999 - 2002 on BBC Two.

It also returned to television screens last Christmas to celebrate 20 years since the show began with three special episodes in December 2017.

Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson said: “The League of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all.

"We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country.

"Plus we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show so we thought why not? Something to do isn’t it?”

Tubbs Tattsyrup added: “I’m so eccited to take my preshus things on tour agen I did a little brown fish!  Do wee go to Swansea?"
