Outdoor fun in Brueton Park
Bad Dad by David Walliams, adapted for the outdoor stage by Heartbreak Productions.
Bad Dad is a fast and furious, heart-warming tale of a father and son on a thrilling mission to break an innocent man into prison . . . It’s a high-speed cops-and-robbers adventure with heart and soul about a father and son taking on the villainous Mr Big – and winning!
More details will follow shortly and the show will be on sale by early December so would make a great Christmas, birthday or Easter gift!
Make sure you bring a blanket or chair to sit on, weather-appropriate gear, and a picnic, as the tale could take some time to tell, and storytelling can be hungry work
Tickets are limited to 450 to ensure everyone can see and hear the performers within the best possible area. The shows have previously sold out so please book early. There are toilets on site but no seating - audiences bring their own folding seat, blanket, waterproof coats, bin liners to sit on - whatever you wish appropriate to the weather.
Ticket buyers who buy ONLINE or OVER PHONE can collect from the gate of the Arena from 6pm on the day of the show.
No cycling or ball games in the Arena please - due to close proximity of others with food etc. The numbers are limited to 450 per show to ensure that everyone can hear and see well, which is why shows sell out quickly. Tickets, where available, cost more when buying on the gate (£tbc)
The first 336 tickets purchased will be guaranteed a seat in the theatre in the event of extreme bad weather on the day. This is due to very heavy rain, thunder, wind or waterlogged ground. Occasional short showers don't prevent the show going ahead and can be fun! Keep your eye on the website as updates will be posted here on the day of the show.
Toilets are available in the nearby Parkridge Centre when open + a portable toilet on site. There is limited parking at Warwick Road end of the park - following ticketing instructions shown.
Well behaved dogs are welcome to attend, but must be kept on a lead! We ask that you keep them away from other customers' picnics and that they do not disturb the actors or other customers. If they get restless or need to do their business at any stage, please take them to the far end of the arena, and clean up after them.
Running time: 2 hrs
Tickets: £13 (£12 children)
Show takes place in Brueton Park, near the lake.
