A hilariously nasty history lessonForget boring textbooks about snooze-worthy Saxons and tedious Tudors: Horrible Histories is back in the West End for Barmy Britain Part 5. Packed full of even more historical mischief-makers, tyrants and fools, the show is guaranteed to delight audiences when it opens in summer 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.
Get ready to pull off a Buckingham Palace break-in and avoid the World War Two witch: Horrible Histories tickets are the ultimate treat for history buffs, whether they’re 5 or 75.
