To celebrate comedian David Walliams’ beloved kids book making its stage debut, we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win a family ticket to see the show live when it zooms into Manchester Arena on Wednesday 01 Jan 2020. Fun for all the family, this hotly tipped adaptation of Walliams’ hugely popular story tells the tale of a kindhearted but forgetful Grandpa who longs to escape the confines of his retirement home and relive the wartime glory days of his youth. Together with his high spirited grandson Jack, the duo embark on a daring escape that sees them drive a tank, fly a life-size Spitfire and avoid the clutches of the home’s mean boss, Matron Swine. The Young Ones star Nigel Planer steps into the shoes of the show’s eponymous Grandpa, joining a production that boasts eye-popping production design from the expert teams behind Cirque du Soleil and Beyoncé’s live shows. To be in with a chance of winning one family ticket (four of the best available seats) for either the 1pm or the 4pm performances at Manchester Arena on Wednesday 01 January 2020, simply fill out the form below before the competition closes at midday on Monday 16 December. This prize does not include travel or other expenses – full details about the show can be found here. Good luck!

Please note: This competition has now closed.
