What is Horrible Histories - Terrible Tudors? 

With a talented cast of actors and a script packed full of fascinating facts, this hilarious show transports you back to the days of historic icons such as Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, and William Shakespeare.  

Witness the Tudor court in all its glory as you learn about the lives of ordinary people during this tumultuous period in English history. From politics and power struggles to scandals and love affairs, uncover all aspects of Tudor life with the perfect blend of humour and drama. 

A man and a woman dressed in Tudor costumes are standing on the stage of the Garrick Theatre making faces at the audience.

Don't worry if you're not a history buff - the Terrible Tudors are anything but dry and stuffy! The show is filled with hilarious jokes, catchy songs, and silly sketches that will have you laughing out loud. Follow along with each amusing story (told in some rather questionable accents) whilst learning a few revolting rhymes.
