Horrible Histories - The Best of Barmy Britain

Age Restriction: Suitable for age 5-10

Experience history with all of the juicy bits left to digest as Horrible Histories returns to the capital for another memorable run of performances in the West End. Following up Barmy Britain Parts 1 to 3, the Apollo Theatre stages this best-of edition compiling the amazing parts of the previous shows.

It plays during the summer when the kids are off school and it will be the perfect time to introduce them to the West End, provide some education and allow them to have a great time all at once.

After all, what’s no to love about Horrible Histories, the series that has included memorable books, a successful television programme and, now, a stage series as well?

With The Best Of Barmy Britain, Horrible Histories allows audiences to delve into historical figures and items from Britain, including King John, Boudicca, Henry VIII, the Magna Carta, Guy Fawkes, James I, Queen Victoria and Burke & Hare, amongst many others. It will have kids howling with laughter as they revel in our bloodthirsty history.

But then, this is what Horrible Histories does best. Ever since Terry Deary introduced the series in book form to audiences in the 1990s it has gone from strength to strength. Who could forget the Terrible Tudors, the Awesome Egyptians and more? The series makes learning fun and ensures our kids are remembering some awesome facts from our history.

Presented by the Birmingham Stage Company and starring Neal Foster, amongst others, Horrible Histories: The Best Of Barmy Britain runs at the Apollo Theatre from Tuesday 9th August 2016 (previews from Friday 5th August 2016).
