Horrible Histories - The Best of Barmy Britain tickets

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.
With killer comedy and high octane songs, this is like no history lesson that has ever been taught in a classroom. Having featured characters such as King John, Henry VIII, Guy Fawkes, Queen Victoria, Boudicca and Burke and Hare, the Horrible Histories stage show is always the perfect way to bring British history to life in a hilarious and action packed way.

Starring Neal Foster and Alison Fitzjohn, the Horrible Histories team once again brought their unique concoction of history and humour in the Best of Barmy Britain to the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End in August 2016.

Best Seats

SeatPlan Recommends: If you really want to be in the action then you cannot beat the central stalls in the Apollo Theatre, however with no restrictions on the views from side seats, you may be able to grab yourself a bargain. Row N back in the stalls can have some slight overhang from the circle, so it may be better to look at options in the circle if deliberating between the two.
