About Grandpa's Great Escape

Many years ago, Grandpa was a World War II flying ace. But when he is sent to old folk’s home Twilight Towers – run by sinister Matron Swine – it’s up to Grandpa and his grandson, Jack, to plot a daring escape. Little do they know, the wicked matron is on to them… 

The first ever stage adaptation of Grandpa’s Great Escape, the exhilarating No.1 bestselling children’s book by actor and comedian David Walliams, will tour UK arenas this Christmas – the perfect treat for all the family.

The wonderous stage design for this arena spectacular will see venues around the UK transformed into London and its landmarks, including Buckingham Palace and the River Thames, from thousands of feet in the sky, as Grandpa’s life size Spitfire soars through the air. 

Grandpa’s Great Escape Live follows the acclaimed television film which aired on BBC One in December 2018, and will be directed by Tony Award nominee Sean Foley. 

The show runs at approximately 75 minutes without interval.

This is an adaptation of David Walliams’ book and he will not be appearing in person at this event.
