...days out: see David Walliams in his PJs at Symphony Hall this Sunday

I've been working with Town Hall and Symphony Hall Birmingham for the past couple of months so wanted to share news of the David Walliams event taking place this Sunday, where he will be realing from and talking about his new children's fiction title, The Midnight Gang.

For fans and bookworms alike, it promises to be a great event plus £1 from every ticket sold will be donated to Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity - so the season of goodwill and giving begins early.

Over to the Symphony Hall team to tell you more... 

Town Hall Symphony Hall, HarperCollins Children’s Books and the bookselling mini-chain Foyles have confirmed that multi-talented and award-winning author David Walliams will be coming to Symphony Hall for his biggest event yet. Fans young and old will be able to hear, for the first time ever in front of a live audience, David talk about his new children’s fiction title, The Midnight Gang.

David Walliams and THSH will be inviting families from Birmingham Children’s Hospital to attend the show for free, and £1 from every ticket purchased will be donated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity. HarperCollins Children’s Books, David Walliams’ publisher for both his fiction and picture book titles, will also donate a copy of The Midnight Gang to every child staying in the hospital.

This pre-Christmas season spectacular will take place on 20th November in the heart of Birmingham. Fans are encouraged to take part in the midnight magic and come dressed to the event in their pyjamas for some classic Walliams silliness!

Hosted by CBBC presenter, Katie Thistleton, the audience will hear David read from The Midnight Gang and immerse themselves in the glorious world of David Walliams. They will also be able to meet some of their favourite characters from the book including the loveable Raj – so should arrive early!

Elinor Eustace, Deputy Director of Fundraising at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said:
“We are delighted that Town Hall Symphony Hall have chosen to support us by donating £1 from every ticket purchased to this event. The money raised will go a long way to making a huge difference to the lives of our brave children and their families as we continue our plans to improve our facilities – enabling us to treat even more children from Birmingham, the West Midlands and around the country.”

Chris Proctor, Programme Manager at Town Hall and Symphony Hall, added that he’s looking forward to welcoming David Walliams to Symphony Hall for this very special event, “We regularly welcome some of the world’s greatest musicians to our venues, and now through our partnership with Foyles and HarperCollins Children’s Books, we’re able to attract literary greats to our halls too.

David Walliams is a national treasure and a much loved children’s author; we have no doubts that his show will be a magical experience for fans young and old. As a charitable organisation ourselves, we understand how important donations are to ensure the expansion of the work already being done by Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity can continue, which is why we’ve agreed to donate £1 per ticket purchased to support the work of the hospital, and are providing a selection of free tickets to enable patients, carers and staff to enjoy the show too!”

David Walliams will be at Symphony Hall on Sunday 20th November at 10.30am, with pre-show foyer activities from 9.30am.
