About the show

The scheduled 2020 production of Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part 5 has been deferred to 2021 due to Covid-19.
New booking dates are 29 July - 28 August 2021.
Billed as history with all the nasty bits left in, Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part 5 invites you on an adventure of a thousand years. From getting conquered by William in 1066 to checking out houses with Henry VIII, this is a riotous chance to get up close and personal with history’s most eccentric figures.
The best-selling Horrible Histories books were created by Terry Deary and spawned a hit television series full of catchy songs including “King of Bling”. They’ve since expanded to the big screen, with Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans invading cinemas over the summer.
Since 2005, The Birmingham Stage Company has produced more than fourteen world premieres based on Deary’s books, including Terrible Tudors, Groovy Greeks and the smash-hit Barmy Britain series. Led by founder Neal Foster, the creative team for Barmy Britain Part 5 in the West End is yet to be confirmed.
Get ready to pull off a Buckingham Palace break in and avoid the World War Two witch: Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part 5 at the Apollo Theatre is the ultimate winsome and absurd adventure. Catch it when it opens from 27 July 2021.
Recommended forFans of Horrible Histories’ ghoulishly good past seasons in the West End should secure tickets for this next instalment. With a fantastic mix of comedy and education, it’s the perfect introduction to theatre and history for school-age children (and youthful adults).
Age Recommendations: Recommended 5+. Please be advised that children may be refused entry if they are not sitting next to an accompanying adult.
