This summer, wordy Will, crazy King Charles and dastardly Dick Turpin invade the Garrick Theatre in Horrible Histories - More Best Of Barmy Britain, inviting us to explore our history - with the nasty bits left in! Read More >

This August, Birmingham Stage Company takes over the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End to present Horrible Histories – More Best Of Barmy Britain, celebrating the company’s 25th anniversary. 

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead! So it’s time to prepare yourselves for a special production of Horrible Histories featuring more of your favourite characters from our barmy past – and a brand new scene with wordy Will!

Find out why the Romans were revolting! Could you survive the vicious Vikings? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Would you party with the Puritans? Clap along with crazy King Charles! Dare you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Vomit with the vile Victorians and prepare to do battle in the frightful First World War! It’s history with the nasty bits left in!

This marks 12 years of Horrible Histories Live On Stage, and 6 years in the West End. This special instalment of Barmy Britain follows the sell-out successes of Barmy Britain – Parts One, Two and Three, as well as last year’s The Best Of Barmy Britain, and will feature more of the horribly best bits from all past productions plus a brand new scene about Shakespeare.

Horrible Histories are recommended for ages 5 to 105! (106 year olds may not like it as much).
