We all want to meet people from history! The trouble is everyone is dead!
So it’s time to prepare for Horrible Histories live on stage with the acclaimed production of Gorgeous Georgians and Vile Victorians!
Are you ready to swing with a Georgian king? Can you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Dare you dance the Tyburn jig? Will you be saved by Florence Nightingale? Find out what a baby farmer did and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria!
Don’t miss this horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!
Produced by The Birmingham Stage Co.
Reminder: This is an outdoor show, so please come prepared with sun hats, sun cream or warm/waterproof clothing.
Is this any way for children to learn about history? Too right it is! If lessons were always like this, kids would be queuing up at the school gates every morning!
The Horrible Histories stage shows have become a bit of a British institution. It’s not hard to spot why. Think Fry and Laurie, mixed with Little Britain and a dash of Monty Python. It’s sparky, cheeky and covered in poo!
