Gangsta Granny by David Walliams Comes to the Stage! - Competition

My children love the book 'Gangsta Granny' by David Walliams, so much so that on World Book Day this year, my son Ben dressed up as the main character from the book complete with swag bag and walking stick!

We were therefore delighted to learn that the Birmingham Stage Company – the acclaimed producers of Horrible Histories, George’s Marvellous Medicine and Tom’s Midnight Garden – are bringing their world premiere of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny to the Opera House, Manchester, from Wednesday 7 June to Sunday 11 June 2017.

David Walliams is one of the judges on the popular Britain's Got Talent TV Show, and creator of the ground-breaking comedy series Little Britain and Big School. He is now also the best-selling author for children in the country.

David began his publishing career at Harper Collins in early 2008 with his debut novel The Boy in the Dress. Then, after writing two other popular stories, in 2011 he published Gangsta Granny, which was shortlisted for both The Red House Children's Book Award and for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.

At Christmas 2013 a TV version of Gangsta Granny was shown on BBC One with an all-star cast including David Walliams himself. Gangsta Granny went straight to Number 1 in the childrens's book charts and his books have been translated into no fewer than 30 languages.

Gangsta Granny is a must for all families as the show will be enjoyed by everyone aged from 5 to 105! It's both laugh out loud funny with some brilliant comic scenes but also has some very moving and truthful things to say about family relationships.

Tickets can be booked now at or by calling the box office on 0844 871 3018. (Booking/transaction fee applies).
