Hilarious hit West End show Horrible Histories – More Best of Barmy Britain is coming to the Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple for the first time.

Zany historical fun with Horrible Histories. Zany historical fun with Horrible Histories.

On Friday and Saturday, March 2-3, audiences can enjoy a gag-filled gallop through several thousand years of history with two actors playing all of the roles.

Find out why the Romans were revolting! Could you survive the vicious Vikings? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Go wild with wordy Will Shakespeare!

Would you party with the Puritans? Clap along with crazy King Charles! Vomit with the Victorians and prepare to do battle in the First World War.

More Best of Barmy Britain is written by Terry Deary and Neal Foster from Deary’s bestselling Horrible Histories books.

He has written 200 books which have been translated into 40 different languages. His 50 Horrible Histories titles have sold more than 25 million copies worldwide from China to Brazil.

Brought to you by the Birmingham Stage Company, it’s history with the nasty – and hilarious – bits left in.

The show will entertain all ages with its hysterical historical journey through the barmiest bits of British history.
