Get ready for a night of laughs – Jack Whitehall is coming to Derby Arena and he’s bringing his parents!

Comedian Jack Whitehall is joined by his parents Hilary and Michael Whitehall in this latest hilarious stage show Jack Whitehall with Hilary and Michael: How to survive family holidays. Join Derby LIVE and the Whitehall family at Derby Arena on Wednesday 16th March 2022 at 8pm for a suitcase full of laughs.

This unique production shows the Whitehall family share their hard-won advice on how to survive the sometimes-dreaded family holiday, as featured in the family’s new book. No amount of sunshine, wine or holiday spirit will stop your worst character traits coming to the surface after you have volunteered to spend a week in close proximity of your family! No one survives a family holiday unscathed – things are bound to end in tears; you can only hope they’re tears of laughter.

If you’re looking for a relatable chuckle this March, come and listen to some of the best and funniest anecdotes from the Whitehall’s experiences of travelling together for the past few years. As shown in the hit Netflix show Travels With My Father, the Whitehall family will lay out the perils, pitfalls and even the joys of a family holiday.

Slap on your factor 50, pump up the inflatable lilo and prepare for take-off. See you soon!
