Basil Brush, the most lovable fox in Britain, and his TV chum Mr Stephen, are at Buxton Opera House today (Tuesday, April 7).

The mischievous fox is there for two shows, the second at 2.30pm follows his first this morning.

Basil first appeared on TV in 1962 when his cheeky character struck a chord with viewers, winning him his own programme The Basil Brush Show which ran for 13 years!

The fox has gained a new generation of young fans since making a TV comeback on CBBC.

Tickets for his Buxton show cost £14 (adult), £12 (child). Contact 0845 127 2190.
