WINCHESTER will be welcoming back the immensely popular Horrible Histories stage production.

Children and their parents will have the opportunity to hear about Britain’s long past, with the “nasty bits” kept in on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17.

Based on Terry Deary’s books, Horrible Histories: Brand New Barmy Britain will feature an array of Britain’s baddest and rudest figures from the past, including William the Conqueror, Henry VIII, Queen Victoria and even the witch of World War Two.

The show has been put together by The Birmingham Stage Company, which has performed Horrible Histories live shows such as Awful Egyptians since 2005 as well as adaptations of children’s books, including a stage production of Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine which has been on tour around the world for more than two decades, as well as The Jungle Book and Gangsta Granny.

The Birmingham Stage Company’s Horrible Histories last visited the stage at the Theatre Royal Winchester in October last year for its Terrible Tudors production.

The Horrible Histories book series has sold tens of millions of copies since the 1990s, and has been adapted into both a CBBC television series and a 2019 film.
