Grandpa's Great Escape LiveDavid Walliams's popular kids' book, Grandpa's Great Escape, gets its first ever stage adaptation and tours to UK arenas this Christmas, visiting London's Wembley Arena on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th December. The multi-million pound live show follows the acclaimed television film which aired in December last year on BBC One. The spectacular live arena show is directed by Tony Award nominee Sean Foley and features lavish stage design. As Grandpa's life size Spitfire soars through the air you'll see London landmarks, including Buckingham Palace and the River Thames, recreated from thousands of feet in the sky. Large scale scenes include a tank and a dramatic escape from the Imperial War Museum.

 

About SSE Arena, Wembley

This is London's second largest indoor arena after The O2, and though the building lacks the character of some of the older venues, the sheer scale of the place makes Wembley Arena an exciting place to watch a gig. Located opposite Wembley Stadium, Wembley Arena has hosted concerts by some of the world's most famous artists, including The Beatles, Rod Stewart, ABBA, The Cure, Spice Girls, Beyonce, Bob Dylan, Pearl Jam and many more.
