Event Details

Brought to you by the team from Horrible Histories, Horrible Christmas is packed with jokes and education! When you think of Christmas, many things usually come to mind – family, joy, goodwill, presents… – but how about Oliver Cromwell (fact)? Or Henry VIII (fact)? 

When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young courageous boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas? From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on a hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas as they all join forces to save the festive season! 

Bring the whole family to enjoy this festive adventure as Horrible Histories presents the terrific tale of Christmas. It’s a celebration in the most wonderful, funny and moving way you’ll ever see!
