Having already announced the unique Covid-safe production of David Walliams Billionaire Boy that will be delighting families in their cars around the country over the coming Easter holidays, CAR PARK PARTY have listened to the demands of children (and their parents) and have announced not one, but two Horrible Histories touring productions that will be joining the aforementioned Billionaire Boy in giving families a much-needed live experience at a car park near you!

Fresh from helping thousands of families plug the panto-less gap with Horrible Christmas, Birmingham Stage Company and Coalition Agency are delighted to add 25 HORRIBLE HISTORIES – BARMY BRITAIN shows along with HORRIBLE HISTORIES – GORGEOUS GEORGIANS & VILE VICTORIANS, which will be playing at a smaller number of exclusive CAR PARK PARTY venues this coming Easter.

Both hilarious hit shows are a gag-filled gallop through centuries of British history with two amazing actors playing multiple historical roles!

HORRIBLE HISTORIES – BARMY BRITAIN features Queen Boudicca, King Henry VIII, Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin, Queen Victoria and more historical characters from our barmy past! 
Are you ready to swing with a Georgian king? Can you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Dare you dance the Tyburn jig? Find out what a baby farmer did and be saved by Florence Nightingale with HORRIBLE HISTORIES – GORGEOUS GEORGIANS & VILE VICTORIANS.
