We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead! So it’s time to prepare yourselves for this very special production of Horrible Histories live on stage!

Can you beat battling Boudicca? Would you be a martyr for the Magna Carta? Will you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry VIII? Will Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Dare 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 August at the Theatre Royal Nottingham!

Acclaimed children’s show Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain returns to the West End, UK tour to follow

  • The latest installment of Birmingham Stage Company’s acclaimed Horrible Histories theatrical series opens at London’s Apollo Theatre in July 
  • A UK tour visiting 7 venues later this year also announced
  • Tickets are available to book now from £15

Birmingham Stage Company’s acclaimed Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain series returns to London’s West End later this month, prior to a nationwide UK tour in Autumn 2021. 

Billed as history with all the nasty bits left in, Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part 5 urges children to forget dreary documentaries and boring textbooks in favour of an exciting romp through history, live on stage! 

From breaking into Buckingham Palace to house-hunting with Henry VIII, this riotous show is a chance to get up close and personal with history’s best mischief-makers, tyrants and fools. 

Written and directed by Neal Foster, the West End production stars Neal Foster and Morgan Philpott. The creative team includes Jackie Trousdale (design), Jason Taylor (lighting), Nick Sagar (sound), Matthew Scott (music), Kenn Oldfield (choreography) and Adrian Littlejohns (production management). 

Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part 5 is based on Terry Deary’s best-selling non-fiction books for children first launched by Scholastic in 1993. The Horrible Histories franchise includes a BBC television series and the 2019 film Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans.

A UK tour of Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain will open at Richmond Theatre on 14th October 2021, before visiting York, Crawley, Aylesbury, Dartford, Glasgow and Birmingham. 

Neal Foster is the founder and Artistic Director of Birmingham Stage Company, a leading producer of children’s theatre. Their credits include David Walliams’ Billionaire Boy and Gangsta Granny, and Horrible Histories: Groovy Greeks and Incredible Invaders.

Bringing the outrageously funny children’s books to a whole new generation of keen historians, audiences will rediscover the joy of learning with this brilliant stage adaptation. Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part 5 opens at the Apollo Theatre from 29th July 2021.
