Saturday 5th August | Raby Castle
Join us under the open sky this summer for an amazing theatre performance of Bad Dad! Set amidst the breath-taking backdrop of Raby Castle, experience the magic of open-air theatre like never before!
Gather round and give three cheers for Reverend Judith. She is receiving the Citizen of the Year Award for her amazing work with the food bank. Come congratulate her and hear how it all started with Frank and his dad, Gilbert. 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, he agrees to become a get-away driver for the local baddies.
Join Heartbreak Productions for this warm-hearted tale that follows the highs and lows of a father-son relationship. 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.
Grab your popcorn, bring your chaise longue (or blanket), and settle in. The show is about to begin…
Gates Open – 5:30 pm
Show Starts – 6:30 pm
Show Ends – 8:30 pm
Food and Drinks will be available to purchase throughout the night
Please note: The performance is an outdoor event so please dress for the weather and bring along something to sit on (a blanket or a low-backed chair)
