Show Information

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead!

So it’s time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage with a brand new West End show that has never toured before featuring all new scenes!

Be reduced to rubble by the ruthless Romans! Would you be shaken or stirred by Richard III? Mount a mutiny against King Henry VIII! See Mary Tudor knock the spots off Mary Queen of Scots! Will Queen Elizabeth I endure her terrible teeth? Would you be hanged by King James I for being a witch? Peep into the world of Samuel Pepys and help Georgian detectives find the headless man! Take a trip into the night with the night soil men and discover how to survive the first ever train ride!

It's the history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!

This show appeared at the Apollo Theatre in the West End as Barmy Britain - Part Four in 2018.

"Neal Foster has adapted Terry Deary's fun history books for young children into a raucous, fast-paced experience, with lots of fart gags... It's snappy, silly and a lot of fun!" What'sOnStage

"Take your children or maybe just go by yourself. It's a blood-stained, bubo-pocked hogshead of laughs with fascinating details of the darker side of life across 1,000 years of Britain's torment in Foster's crackling script!" The Morning Star

"Horrible Histories is back, channelling Monty Python, the Reduced Shakespeare Company and Punch and Judy along the way." The Times
