Horrible Histories returns to the West End, this time in a special production that celebrates even more of barmy Britain! Following the tremendous success of last year’s The Best of Barmy Britain at the Apollo Theatre, Horrible Histories: More Best of Barmy Britain plays a limited summer season at the Garrick Theatre, with previews beginning August 4th 2017.
We all want to meet people from history. Unfortunately, the people that we want to meet are very much dead! But never fear, Horrible Histories are here to ensure that you get to meet every single one of your favourite characters from Britain’s barmy past!
Discover why the Romans revolted! Would you be able to survive the vicious Vikings? Can the evil Elizabeth entertain England? Would you perchance party with the Puritans? Meet King Charles, the dastardly Dick Turpin, the vile Victorians and a very wordy William Shakespeare, and prepare to embark on a battle in the frightful First World War!
