Their production of my book The Midnight Gang was so beautiful, and made me laugh and cry in equal measure. If you have never seen the work of Chickenshed before, then you are in for a real treat!

When the clock strikes midnight most children are fast asleep, but for the Midnight Gang the journey is just beginning.

Five children find themselves in hospital for a variety of reasons, including Tom who’s been hit on the head by a cricket ball and really doesn’t want to go back to school. They soon discover that something far more exciting is happening beyond the confines of the children’s ward. A heart-warming and hilarious tale of fun, friendship and adventure ensues, all under the cover of darkness when the horrible matron is sure they are all fast asleep.

Writer David Walliams has already created an amazingly rich collection of children’s fiction, and is rightly seen by many as the natural successor and inheritor of Roald Dahl’s off-beat and wacky world of subversive and anarchic stories for children. Since making his debut into the world of children’s literature in 2008, David Walliams has celebrated exceptional success. His global sales total over 35 million copies and his work has been translated into over 53 languages. The Midnight Gang, went straight to No. 1 on its release in 2016 in the overall book charts and remained there for seven weeks.  It was the industry’s biggest selling book for Christmas and was the Christmas No. 1 making it the first children’s No. 1 since J K Rowling in 2008.

Join Chickenshed and the Midnight Gang for an unforgettable midnight adventure - it’s going to be brilliant!!!
