Christmas is coming early to the Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton with Nativity the Musical.

While the show will run from October 29 to November 2, the first night’s performance will also include a Family Networking Event.

If you usually struggle with childcare or want to treat your grandchildren, nieces or nephews, it’s a chance to bring the kids along, network and enjoy a fantastic show.

The evening will start with a buffet at 6pm in the Spotlight Lounge and the show will start earlier than usual at 7pm. The evening should be finished by 9.30pm. Christmas jumpers are optional but encouraged!

Nativity the Musical, starring Danny Dyer, has seen two sell out seasons in London. 

Following his breakthrough role in cult 90s film Human Traffic, Danny Dyer has become a well-known face on British television, with many films, television programmes, and documentaries to his name. 

Since 2013, he has played the role of Mick Carter, landlord of the Queen Victoria, in the BBC’s EastEnders.

The show is a feel-good musical, adapted for the stage by Debbie Isitt, the creator of the much-loved films.

Every child at St Bernadette’s School wants to star in the Nativity and teacher Mr Maddens has promised that a Hollywood producer is coming to see the show to turn it into a film.

The cast includes  Scott Garnham and Ashleigh Gray, who reprise their roles as Mr Maddens and Jennifer Lore, and Scott Paige, The Addams Family and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, as Mr Poppy.
