Birmingham Stage Company’s two Horrible Histories productions—Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians reach Blackpool’s historic Grand Theatre in March.

Both shows use actors and ‘Bogglevision 3D special effects’, helping the audience to feel what it was like to live in the 16th or 19th centuries.

The shows are adapted from Terry Deary’s best selling Horrible Histories. He has written around 200 books, which have been translated into 40 different languages from China to Brazil.

Birmingham Stage Company is one of the country’s premier companies producing theatre for children, well known for their stage versions of children’s classics such as The Jungle Book, Kensuke’s Kingdom and many Roald Dahl adaptations.
