Take a journey into the past with Horrible Histories at Hackney Empire

FROM one of the first King Henrys, to dodging the rotten railways – Horrible Histories is set to tear through the history books with its usual brand of anarchic comedy.

Learn about the legend and lies surrounding the Tudors, the fate of Henry VIII’s wives, and what exactly a baby farmer did, plus survive the Spanish Armada as it sails into the audience, and prepare for the Charge of the Light Brigade.

Using live action and 3D effects, two thrilling shows – Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians – bring historical figures alive on stage.

Horrible Histories is an award-winning British children’s television series, based on the Terry Deary book series of the same name. The Guardian newspaper called it not ‘just the best show on children’s television – it’s one of the smartest comedies on TV’.

It has now been adapted for the stage and runs from 29 to 31 March, at Hackney Empire, 291 Mare Street, E8 1EJ.

Click here for tickets (£10-20). Book Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians at the same time and receive 20 per cent off the total cost.
