Open-Air Theatre: David Walliams’ Bad Dad

Go to Nottingham City Museums

Monday 28 August | Gates 5pm, show 6pm

Gilbert is a bit of a local celebrity. He was no other than the legendary ‘King of the Track’, Gilbert the Great. That was until a tragic accident put a stop to his track-racing days. Driven to desperate measures in order to provide for his son Frank, he agrees to become a get-away driver for the local baddies.

An open-air adaptation of David Walliams’ Bad Dad is the perfect summer family entertainment. So, pack your picnics, grab your wet weather gear or sun-cream (or both), something to sit on, and join Frank and Gilbert as they navigate their way through car chases and convicts in the struggle to escape the clutches of the local crime lord and clear Gilbert’s name.

Adults: £18
Children (5-16)/NUS students: £11
Family (2 adults, 2 children): £50
