A group of all singing all dancing Kenyan warriors is coming to Buxton next month to raise money for those living in abject poverty.

Famed for their on-stage jumping, the troupe of seven Maasai performers is touring the country in aid of their charity Osiligi, which supports members’ families and their community near Nairobi.

It will be their first appearance in Derbyshire at the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton on October 1, since they started touring in 2003.

The troupe’s success has led to fresh clean water, solar lighting and the building of a school, a church and a clinic.

To book, call Buxton Opera House’s box office on 0845 1272190.
