30 & 31 July
It's time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage with the all-new production of BARMY BRITAIN – PART TWO! Can you beat battling Boudicca? Has William Wallace met his match? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Will King Charles keep his head? Would you stand and deliver to dastardly Dick Turpin? Escape the clutches of Burke and Hare and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria! Don't miss this horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!

The event will be streamed live from the Bridgewater Hall, an award winning concert venue in Manchester.
David Mitchell delights us with a tour of the absurdities of modern life - Ryanair to Downtown Abbey, sports day to smoking, Poundland to phone etiquette, UKIP to hotdogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense.
