Win family theatre tickets!

The new theatre production of David Walliams’ The First Hippo on the Moon is blasting off in Sussex in the lead up to Christmas and we’re giving you a chance to get your hot little hands on a family ticket for the show.

We have two sets of tickets for two families of four to give away, valid until 7 January 2017.


Eastbourne’s rather appropriately named Royal Hippodrome will be the first place on planet earth you can see The First Hippo on the Moon before it embarks on a UK tour that will also include Worthing in February and Brighton in July. The space race story featuring large puppets and songs is being brought to life by Les Petits Theatre Company, who were behind the hugely popular Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs and the creative team includes some of the guys involved in creating the brilliant War Horse puppets. David Walliams himself has also had creative input.

The show is suitable for children aged three plus. Family tickets costs from £43 but we’ll be giving two families the chance to get in for free.

So here’s what you do…
