Terrible Tudors gives visitors the chance to take a trip through the horrible Henrys to the end of evil Elizabeth and hear the legend (and the lies!) about the torturing Tudors. Find out the fate of Henry’s headless wives and his punch-up with the Pope. Meet Bloody Mary and see Ed fall dead in his bed. Survive the Spanish Armada as it sails into the audience! Terrible Tudors runs from Tuesday 5 November to Friday 8 November 2019.

Awful Egyptians invites you to meetthe fascinating Pharaohs, gasp at the power of the pyramids, and discover the foul facts of death and decay with the meanest mummies in Egypt. Are you ready to rumble with Ramesses the Great? Dare you enter through the Gates of the Afterlife? It’s the history of Egypt with the nasty bits left in! Awful Egyptians runs from Wednesday 6 November to Friday 8 November 2019.

A special feature of the productions are the amazing Bogglevision 3D effects. Among an array of 3D-illusions the audience will see the Spanish Armada firing cannonballs into the auditorium or the Mummy reaching out to grab them!

A brilliantly fun piece of educational theatre that taught this

history graduate a few new things’

Daily Telegraph

‘Is this any way for children to learn about history? Too right it is!

If lessons were always like this, kids would be queuing at the school gates!’

The Times

‘Mortgage the school if you have to. Ransom the governors, even.

No child or adult should be denied the chance to see this:

live theatre and history at its rip-roaring best’

Times Educational Supplement

‘These actors should be in every school history class across the land.

Or given how little most us know, maybe every living room!’

The Scotsman

‘Wholly accessible, educating, entertaining and enjoyable,

Horrible Histories live on stage is a tour de force. Five stars out of five!’
