Barmy Britain - Part Three!

“The Horrible Histories stage shows have become a bit of a British institution. It’s not hard to spot why. The Rik Mayall-esque Spargo and Foster are a brilliant comic act: think Fry and Laurie, mixed with Little Britain and a dash of Monty Python. It’s sparky, cheeky and covered in poo!”
The Guardian

“The children sing along to the zippy songs with glee, especially the fabulous Puritan Rag. They’ll be enthralled by this all-singing, all-dancing historical sketch show. Horrible, it is.”
The Times

 “Anarchic, cheeky, illuminating fun - a little fact-packed gem. The actors are a hoot, funny and sharp, delivering the one-liners with excellent timing. Here’s a show that has brains (with the winning mix of fart-jokes) aplenty”
Time Out - No.1 Critic's Choice

The Public Reviews

“The very talented cast of Horrible Histories delighted the audience from beginning to end. All poo references were met with delight from a hypnotised audience.”

“A roller coaster ride through time, featuring fascinating facts, hilarious songs, with the ball of energy never dipping for a single second. Both children and grownups laughed their socks off from start to finish. This isn't your average children's show - it's educational, enjoyable and - most importantly - a real hoot!”
