Aylesbury Waterside Theatre has revealed a series of planned productions designed to appeal to youngsters during this year’s summer holiday school break.

Later this month families can check out performances of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny from 28 to 31 July.

The Walliams-penned play follows Ben on a typical visit to his granny’s house to receive cabbage soup and cabbage cake.
