Horrible Histories

Those Terrible Tudors and Awful Egyptians are heading for Sunderland Empire, 21 – 24 November 2018 with two hilarious shows featuring eye-popping 3D special effects!

In 1993, the first of Terry Dearys’ Horrible Histories books were published and now HORRIBLE HISTORIES Live On Stage is coming back to the North East with Terrible Tudors and Awful Egyptians!

In TERRIBLE TUDORS take a trip through the horrible Henries 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 the amazing 3D effects called Bogglevision! Among an array of 3D illusions the audience will see the Spanish Armada firing cannonballs into the auditorium or the Mummy reaching out to grab them!

Horrible Histories Live on Stage is written by Terry Deary from his bestselling Horrible Histories books. Terry Deary is the world's bestselling non-fiction author for children and one of the most popular children’s authors in the country. He has written 200 books which have been translated into 40 different languages.
