Horrible Histories - Barmy Britain is returning to the Midlands this Easter.

Having staged their unique Covid-safe production to delighted audiences last summer, and then returning at the end of the year with Horrible Christmas, Birmingham Stage Company and Coalition Agency have added Midlands Horrible Histories - Barmy Britain shows to the Car Park Party Easter line-up, alongside David Walliams' Billionaire Boy.

Horrible Histories - Barmy Britain features Queen Boudicca, King Henry VIII, Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin, Queen Victoria 'and more historical characters from our barmy past'.

Birmingham Stage Company's actor/director, Neal Foster, said, “I’m over the moon to be back on tour with Barmy Britain after its hugely successful tour last summer. It’s weird and wonderful to be performing in car parks and to see the audience having fun behind their windshields. We can’t wait to get back out there.”

Horrible Histories Live On Stage is based on the bestselling books written by Terry Deary, illustrated by Martin Brown and published by Scholastic. It first launched in 2005 with the world premieres of Terrible Tudors & Vile Victorians. Since then, Birmingham Stage Company has produced 18 different Horrible shows, performing to over three million people in the UK
