Horrible Histories - Barmy Britain

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead!

So it’s time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage with a brand new show BARMY BRITAIN with all new amazing 3D effects!

Can you beat battling Boudicca? What if a Viking moved in next door? Has William Wallace met his match? Would you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Will Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Can King Charles keep his head? Would you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare, move to the grove with party Queen Victoria and prepare to do battle in the frightful First World War!

It’s the horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!

‘Issued with Bogglevision glasses, we screamed as a skull swooped towards our faces and debris from an exploding dam flew around.‘ **** Daily Telegraph

‘The latest sensation on the theatrical block. The audience shrieked as 3D objects whizzed over the stalls and the children were hooked’ The Times

‘The sheer novelty of 3D – BOGGLEVISION adds immeasurably to youthful excitement and makes this show something very special indeed!’ The Stage

‘3D Bogglevision adds an extra layer of entertainment as the audience ducks fireworks, cannonballs & beetles’ Evening Express

'These actors should be in every school history class across the land. Or, given how little most of us know about history, maybe that should be every living room” The Scotsman

Friday 16th May 10.30am Relaxed Performance:

Relaxed performances are specifically designed for people with an autistic spectrum condition, learning disability or sensory and communication disorders.

They have a less formal, more supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety levels, and there is a very relaxed attitude to noise and movement, with changes to the sound levels and lighting effects.
