Horrible Christmas

Horrible Histories proudly presents the terrific tale of Christmas in a special production of Horrible Christmas which will be the first ever festive show at the newly opened Alexandra Palace Theatre, London.

When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas? From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on an hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII, St Nicholas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer as they all join forces to save the festive season!

It's a celebration of Christmas in the most wonderful, wildly funny and moving way you'll ever see!

    Have been to see Barmy Britain many times, but didn't know what to expect from Horrible Christmas - we wasn't disappointed, great original story line. Amazing cast who give their all to bring all the characters to life, plenty of grown up jokes too. Venues was fabulous had a great view of the show. Can't wait for what next year bring.
