Saturday afternoon will see her bring her show ReDefined to the town.

In March 2020 Juliette was on tour with her Arts Council funded show define when the pandemic hit and lockdown was introduced. The show was all about what happened when everything steadfast in her life back in 2018 vanished and how she re-evaluated how she defined her love, life and labels. Now she is back to explore how the last year has redefined everything.

Juliette said: “I am so excited to come up to the north-east of Scotland and connect with rural community audiences.

"We have been living in such strange times that having a chance to perform for people in a community hall is a real tonic for the soul.”

North East Arts Touring, who are organising the show, are offering special reduced ticket prices to beat the January blues.

There is an opportunity for local people to digitally interact with the show with the definitions of themselves and their town; visit https://defined.julietteburton.co.uk/ before the show.

Juliette has performed five solo shows, When I Grow Up, Look At Me, Decision Time, Butterfly Effect and Defined, at the Edinburgh Fringe, selling out multiple runs. She has won the Argus Angel Award (Brighton Fringe), Spirit Of The Fringe Award (Bedfringe) and Voice Mag’s Pick Of The Fringe Award (Edinburgh Fringe).

ReDefined is due to get under way at 4pm in the Victoria Park Function Hall. It will be followed by a Q&A session of around 15 minutes. Tickets cost £7.50 (adult) and £5 (concession).
