About the Show Less...

Everyone's favourite horrid child makes his London stage debut at Trafalgar Studios in this show for all the family. Read More >

Horrid Henry, one of the most popular characters in children’s fiction, comes to the West End this Christmas with a live stage show appropriately titled Horrid Henry – Live And Horrid!

Along with his long-suffering parents, his smelly-nappied baby brother, Peter Perfect and the rest of the gang, Horrid Henry’s war on grown ups, rules and all things boring is recreated through original music, song and dance in this funny and fast moving family show.

Since 1993, when Francesca Simon’s first Horrid Henry book was published, the series has sold over 12 million copies in the UK and has been published in 27 countries worldwide. The latest book in the series, Horrid Henry Robs The Bank, was published in June 2008. The stories have also been made into an animated television series on CITV.

Horrid Henry’s adventures have been adapted for the stage by John Godber, Artistic Director of Hull Truck Theatre Company whose many plays include Blood, Sweat And Tears, Teechers, the Laurence Olivier Award-winning Up ‘N’ Under and Bouncers.

Suitable for age 5+
