WIN a family pass to see Horrible Histories show Barmy Britain at the Theatre Royal

Horrible Histories Pixel

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 a brand new show Barmy Britain with all new amazing 3D effects which opens at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal on 19th November for a five-night run.

Can you beat battling Boudicca? What if a Viking moved in next door? Has William Wallace met his match? Would you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Will Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Can King Charles keep his head? Would you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare, move to the groove with party Queen Victoria and prepare to do battle in the frightful First World War!

It’s the horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!

For more details on the show visit the Horrible Histories website. Tickets are available from the Theatre Royal.

Please note: This competition has now closed.
