THEATRE SHOWS Billionaire Boy by David Walliams
Following The Big Hoot and last years Book Bench Trail, Solihull welcomes… The Big Sleuth! The word ‘sleuth’ means a detective, but it’s also the collective noun for a group of bears. Wild in Art bring both definitions together in this fun summer sculpture trail featuring giant Sun Bears across the West Midlands. These incredible creatures are all uniquely painted and sited to form a fun trail for sleuth spotters of all ages! Later they‘ll be auctioned for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
Tues 25 & Weds 26 July in Brueton Park, Solihull Mr Spud has lost all his money... a few billion! So his son Joe decides to hold a garage sale. Find out what happens in this delightful outdoor family show. Bring your own seat or blanket and picnic etc. See website for full terms/info. Advance prices £11 adult £10 child.
