Based on the children's books written by Terry Deary, Horrible Histories will be touring London in 2012. Stepping away from the classroom and into the theatre, actors and 3D special effects will be creating a fun and thrilling look into historical figures and events. Expect to gasp as the Horrible Historians put on a truly gruesome and nail biting show. There will be different shows throughout 2012, including Barmy Britain, Vile Victorians and Terrible Tudors all of which will be presented as different productions on separate evenings. For further information visit the official website.

 

About Garrick Theatre

Named after the great 18th century actor-manager David Garrick, whose portrait hangs in the foyer bar, The Garrick is a fantastic piece of late-Victorian kitsch, originally financed by WS Gilbert. The interior is decorated like a Renaissance palace, all cupids and laurels, with hardly a smooth surface visible among all the moulding, gilt and classical statues. More about Garrick Theatre
