The award-winning Horrible Histories team are visiting Birmingham's Resorts World Arena next month with their Barmy Britain production.

The publicity for the show reads as follows: "Can you beat battling Boudicca? Would you be shaken or stirred by Richard III? Will you lose your heart or head to horrible Henry VIII? Can Parliament survive gunpowder Guy? Would you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke & Hare and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria! It's the horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!"

Horrible Histories - Barmy Britain stops off at Resorts World Arena, Birmingham, on Sunday 9 August. Tickets go on sale at 10am on 10 July here
