The Horrible Histories team returned to the stage with more energy than ever, to celebrate their fifth anniversary on stage in London’s West End with the Best of Barmy Britain.

With countless best-selling children’s books, a BAFTA-award winning TV show and years of acclaimed stage productions under their belt, the Horrible Histories gang have become one of the most loved children's shows in the West End, and have once again brought their most captivating characters and fascinating facts for their special anniversary, which ensured that all children (and adults!) were glued to their seats.

From battling Boudicca to lighting up your life with the great fire of London, audiences had the chance to enjoy the bloodiest, brutalist and most gruesome parts of the history of Britain, while still learning a thing or two along the way.
