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! 

Can you beat battling Boudicca? Will King John be a martyr for the Magna Carta? What if you caught the putrid plague? Will you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry VIII? Can 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!

It's the horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in – to entertain the whole family this autumn
