Awful Auntie - David Walliams

Family Event
Sun 21st August 2022
Burton Constable Hall, Hull, East Yorkshire
From £10

For our final instalment of Live on the lawn 2022, we bring you a magnificent production of Awful Auntie.

Awful Auntie?by David Walliams, adapted for outdoor theatre by Heartbreak Productions, is a truly thrilling tale. Owls, ghosts, chases, escapes, motorcycle rides, and tiddlywinks all fill Stella’s days as she evades her menacing Aunt and saves the family home.  Make sure you bring a blanket or chair to sit on, weather-appropriate gear, and a picnic, as the tale could take some time to tell, and storytelling can be hungry work!


Date: Sunday 21st August

Time: Doors from 5pm for a 5.30pm start

Location: North Garden - disabled drop-off available

Facilities: Toilets on site in the North Garden. This is an outdoor production, so dress for the weather! You will also need to bring your own chair or blanket to sit on.

Afternoon tea was created by the Duchess of Bedford in the late 18th century. She invited friends to join her for an afternoon meal of small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, sweets and, of course, tea. The practice was so popular that it was quickly adopted by other social hostesses 

The Burton Constable Whale is featured in Herman Melville's famous novel Moby Dick. 

Today the Burton Constable Whale is nicknamed 'Constable Moby'
