Birmingham Stage Company Announces News Dates For UK Car Park Tour Of HORRIBLE HISTORIES: BARMY BRITAIN

Birmingham Stage Company today announces new tour dates for Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain in association with Car Park Party, Troubadour and Live Nation. The production opens at Henley on Saturday 11 July and will now also visit Bolton, Birmingham, Newmarket, Darlington, Leeds, Bristol, Liverpool, Lincoln and Cheltenham throughout July and August. Please note that productions scheduled in Dudley on 24 July and Manchester on 26 July can regretfully no longer go ahead and ticket holders will be refunded.

Audiences will drive in and enjoy the show from the comfort of their own car, with sound transmitted through each car's radio. This very special production of Barmy Britain live on stage will then tour to the previously announced Northampton, Newbury, Chelmsford, Exeter and Edmonton, concluding the run at Cheltenham on 31 August.

Horrible Histories - Barmy Britain features Queen Boudicca, King Henry VIII, Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin, Queen Victoria and a special guest appearance by King Richard III, who in 1485 famously bought a long-stay ticket for a car park in Leicester.

Since then the Birmingham Stage Company has produced eighteen different Horrible shows, performing to over three million people in the UK, including the longest running children's show in West End history, with its record-breaking series Barmy Britain. Horrible Histories Live on Stage has also become a worldwide phenomenon, performing in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Qatar, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, New Zealand and Australia, where it performed in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House.

Terry Deary is the author of Horrible Histories which is the world's bestselling children's history book series. The series is illustrated by Martin Brown.
