In 1993 the first Horrible Histories books were published and now HORRIBLE HISTORIES Live On Stage is coming to Bristol.

In TERRIBLE TUDORS take a trip through the horrible Henrys to the end of evil Elizabeth and hear the legend (and the lies!) about the torturing Tudors. Find out the fate of Henry's headless wives and his punch up with the Pope. Meet Bloody Mary and see Ed fall dead in his bed. Survive the Spanish Armada as it sails into the audience!
 
AWFUL EGYPTIANS invites you to meet the fascinating Pharaohs, gasp at the power of the pyramids and discover the foul facts of death and decay with the meanest mummies in Egypt. Are you ready to rumble with Ramesses the Great? Dare you enter through the Gates of the Afterlife? It’s the history of Egypt with the nasty bits left in!
 
A special feature of the productions are some amazing 3D effects called Bogglevision. Some of the 3D illusions the audience will see include the Spanish Armada firing cannonballs into the auditorium and an Egyptian Mummy reaching out to grab them.
