Part Three of the much-loved family series Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain makes its West End premiere at the Garrick Theatre. Read More >

The latest in the much-loved family series, Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain – Part Three! makes its West End premiere at the Garrick Theatre this summer.

Following in the footsteps of the hugely successful Barmy Britain Parts One and Two, Birmingham Stage Company returns to the Garrick Theatre with this brand new instalment featuring a brilliantly eccentric line-up of crazy characters and rude rulers from Britain’s barmy past.

From the pens of Terry Deary and Neal Foster, the barmiest bits of British history will attack the stage, including a special sketch with King John to celebrate the 800th year of the signing of the Magna Carta.

Will King John be a martyr for the Magna Carta? Party with the Puritans and light up your life with the Great Fire of London! Clap along with crazy King Charles! Will you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Vomit with the vile Victorians and make a great escape from the First World War.

The production sees previous conjurors of gore, co-writer and director Foster and Anthony Spargo take to the stage as the many characters from our country’s history.

It is history with the nasty bits left in!

Please note, the show is suitable for ages six and older.
