Awful Auntie

Outdoor show in Brueton Park

Awful Auntie by David Walliams, adapted for the outdoor stage by Heartbreak Productions, is a heartfelt but hilarious hoot of an adventure

Stella Saxby is the sole heir to Saxby Hall. But awful Aunt Alberta and her giant owl will stop at nothing to get it from her. Luckily Stella has a secret - and slightly spooky - weapon up her sleeve...

After all, sometimes a special friend, however different, is all you need to win through.

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 (£14 adult & £13 child).

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.
