Get ready for The Midnight Gang - after the success of First Hippo On The Moon and Billionaire Boy, Eastbourne has another David Walliams crowdpleaser on the way for next weekend.

Writer, comedian and Britain’s Got Talent judge Walliams has created an amazingly rich collection of children’s fiction and in 2016 The Midnight Gang went straight to number one in the book charts and remained there for seven weeks.

The action is set at the grand opening of The Lord Funt Hospital Playground, a spectacular new play area for the convalescent child. But when everyone else is sweetly sleeping, Tom and his friends gather in the name of magic, mischief, and memory making.
