The Worst of Barmy Britain

9 October 2020 – 9 January 2021

Due to the situation regarding Covid, the performance dates of this show are subject to change. Please check with the venue when making your booking.


We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead!

So it’s time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage with the West End show that's never toured before!

Will you roar with laughter with Richard the Lionheart? Has William Wallace met his match? Can King Charles keep his head? Will you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Find out what a baby farmer did and meet the Lady of the Lamp! Get ready for your great escape from the First World War!

It's history with the nasty bits left in!


Dates below subject to change due to current situation. We will seek to reschedule any dates which get cancelled.
