It’s time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage as a special production of Barmy Britain featuring 3D Bogglevision.

Can you beat battling Boudicca? What if you caught the putrid plague? Would you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Will Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Would you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria!

Using actors and stunning 3D Bogglevision, historical figures and events will come alive and hover at your fingertips in this action-packed stage production.

Created by Neal Foster and Terry Deary, Barmy Britain has become the longest running children’s show in West End history. It has been performed in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and, most recently, the Sydney Opera House.

Terry Deary’s Horrible Histories books have sold over 25 million copies in 40 different countries. There are currently over 50 titles and Barmy Britain draws from the most awful, awesome and amusing stories in British history!
