A STAGE version of the hit David Walliams novel Billionaire Boy is on its way to Carlisle.

The award-winning Birmingham Stage Company is bringing their brand new production to the Sands Centre in October next year.

Tickets will be on sale from this Friday at 10am, with an exclusive groups pre-sale from 10am this morning.

The theatre company has collaborated twice before with author David Walliams on adaptations of his popular books - with their production of Gangsta Granny landing them an Olivier Award nomination, and their adaption of Awful Auntie winning critical acclaim.

Prices for tickets will range from £10 to £21.50, available from the Sands Centre box office on 01228 633766.
