This Buckinghamshire town is home to notable performers including actress Lynda Bellingham and dancer Brendan Cole. On Exchange Street stands a bronze statue of comedian Ronnie Barker, who began his career in the town.
Aylesbury welcomes many touring productions, including West End musicals, plays, ballet and opera. The 1085-seat Aylesbury Waterside Theatre opened in 2010 and hosts a range of shows, including a pantomime at Christmas.
