Horr-ible hist-oreees!! If like us, you’re fans of the TV series then it’s absolutely impossible to say Horrible Histories without singing it.
The Best of Barmy Britain show at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry had our 9 year old enthralled from start to finish. It has a 70 minute running time which is perfectly pitched for the younger audience. We hired a booster seat for £1 to guarantee an uninterrupted view.
It’s an energetic two-man show – they sing, dance, deliver laugh after laugh and have multiple costume changes. There’s loads of audience participation and it’s a rollicking British history lesson in all its gory detail from the Saxons and Romans through the Victorian Era and WW1 – don’t miss it!!!
