David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny – Christmas show in the West End
Are you looking for a fun show to take all the family to this Christmas? Look no further David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny is coming to town!
This summer I went to the West End with two enthusiastic young theatregoers to see the revival of Billionaire Boy and Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part Five, both of which are very entertaining family shows. My young companions loved seeing books that they had read and loved come to life on the stage and laughed joyously throughout.
Both of these great productions come from the Birmingham Stage Company, which are returning to London this Christmas with their Olivier Award-nominated production of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny, which is playing at the Bloomsbury Theatre from 9th December through to 9th January 2022.
David Walliams has revolutionised reading for children and has become one of the most influential children’s writers today. Since the publication of his groundbreaking first novel, The Boy in the Dress (2008), Walliams has seen unprecedented growth with global sales exceeding 44 million copies, and his books translated into 55 languages. The popularity of all his books, especially Gangsta Granny, looks set to continue for generations to come.
Neil Foster’s fantastic stage adaptation of Gansta Granny is already a proven success, originally premiering in 2015 it has since gone on to enjoy two West End seasons, for which it was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2018.

When Friday night comes along, Ben knows it only means one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be sooooooooo boring! What he doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret, and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could ever imagine as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!
Gangsta Granny is the perfect Christmas show for all the family, hugely entertaining and laugh out loud funny with important things to say about family relationships and the treatment of the elderly.
