Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorian returns to Bloomsbury theatre Read More >

Beware those Horrible Histories are on the rampage again at the Bloomsbury theatre with the head-chopping Henry Vlll and the amazing Charge of the Light Brigade arriving for October.

Birmingham Stage Company’s two Horrible Histories productions – Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians have been stomping through Britain during 2012. Both shows use actors and amazing Bogglevision 3D special effects, helping the audience to feel what it was really like to live in the sixteenth century ruled by all those hideous Henries & the evil Elizabeth I or in the nineteenth century struggling to survive the misery of the mines & those really rotten railways!

In Terrible Tudors you will hear the legends (and the lies!) about the torturing Tudors. Find out the fate of Henry’s headless wives and his punch up with the Pope. Survive the Spanish Armada as it sails right into the audience!

In Vile Victorians you will find out what exactly a baby farmer did. Can you survive the filth of the factories, the slums & the sewers – and prepare for the Charge of the Light Brigade?
