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 Barmy Britain – Part Four!
Be reduced to rubble by the ruthless Romans! Would you be shaken or stirred by Richard III? Will Queen Elizabeth I endure her terrible teeth? Would you be hanged by King James I for being a witch? Mount a mutiny against King Henry VIII! See Mary Tudor knock the spots off Mary Queen of Scots! Peep into the world of Samuel Pepys and help Georgian detectives find the headless man! Take a trip into the night with the night soil men and discover how to survive the first ever train ride!
After seven sensational years in the West End, Barmy Britain is back!
This was the same show as last year despite your having said at the end of the 2018 show that this year would be the next part. We bought seats in good faith and came expecting this statement to be true. As a rating the show was as good as last year, but not significantly different.
EXCELLENT.Very well performed . Enjoyable , entertaining,clever and informative. My grandson throughly enjoyed it.
Really enjoyable way to learn parts of history. Fun for all the family. Well acted and entertaining.
Both myself and my 11 year old son laughed so much during this amazing show - the 2 actors were brilliant both educational and hilarious at the same time. Thank you so much we would recommend this show to all and my son loved being picked to touch the severed head! The raps were so funny and the adult jokes too - thank you so much to the actors truly incredible!
Brilliant performance my Grandchildren loved it and so did we. A clever way to teach kids about History.
Was very disappointed as me and 2 sons came especially for the show and we don’t even live in London. We had row A on the top balcony. As soon as we sat down I realized we just won’t see anything. My kids are 12 and 7. So I had to hold my younger son my my lap which killed my legs. The older one was trying to watch but gave up half way through and went on his phone. I’ll mention that all we could see is a line of lights that was stuck to our balcony. I don’t understand why they sell the first row. Another thing is air con. Looks like that row was on a full blast and we were freezing. When I asked to turn it down some time said ok. 20 mins later I could feel the air was still going so asked another girl to turn it down but she said we can’t as it’s all set. So the first one just smiled to me, lied and went to mind her business. The theater has no booster seats btw. The show itself was poor and boring. 2 blokes and 2 stands with costumes behind them that they change every 10 mins. That’s it. I love history but even I found myself drifting away. At the end, 15 mins before the end of the show I said to kids let’s just go. We were all cold, couldn’t see anything and it was just boring. When we got home my older son said it’s like a street performance but inside and you have to pay for it. He mentioned the place takes more than 20k a show (70 mins). He was that bored that he counted seats and did the maths...feel like £50 odd pounds and effort is truly wasted
I attended with both my 6 year old and 15 year old. Parts of the show were entertaining but boring inbetween those few parts. Definitely not worth the £55 paid for our tickets(all together) If the ticket price had been a bit less I would not have had as high expectations.
We all loved the performance...it made the kids laugh and the adults...highly recommended.
Amazing! It was such a good deal, great seats.
Kids age 5 and 9 both loved this! They were disappointed it wasn’t the actors from the tv show but this disappointment disappeared almost immediately after they realised how funny it was. They especially loved the poo song..... brilliant. Have booked again for a different horrible histories theme later in the year! Recommend!
Not sure what I was expecting for trip to this show with my 7 year old But it wasn’t two men seeing songs about farts an poo That said, songs about farts and poo were the highlights of the show and the toilet humour worked for my daughter. Whilst in London we went to the Science museum which even with a £10 donation was 3.5 x cheaper and much more entertaining
Another fabulous experience at Horrible Histories. Fun for all the family. Lots of laughs for young and old!
The show was great and at the end of show,my children's were more appreciated the fact they could have toilets.
