The Midnight Gang is an adaptation of the book by David Walliams.
When Tom gets hit on the head by a cricket ball, he finds himself on the miserable children’s ward of St Hugo’s Hospital, where he is greeted by a terrifying-looking porter and wicked matron. But things aren’t as bad as they seem and Tom is soon to embark on the most thrilling journey of a lifetime!
The Midnight Gang tells the extraordinarily heartwarming and funny story of five children on their quest for adventure! It is a story of friendship, magic and most importantly… making dreams and wishes come true.
