Think of the guests you’d invite to a dream dinner party, and there’s probably a few famous faces from history in there.

Imagine meeting them ... sort of.

Enter stage right the cast of Horrible Histories live.

The stage show, adapted from the popular children’s historical comedy books, by Terry Deary, is playing at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre.

The new show, Barmy Britain, promises to be full of foul facts, gruesome gore and even 3D effects.

There’s no stiff upper lip for this classically British telling of history, though as battling Boudicca and evil Elizabeth are introduced and audiences are tested not to lose their hearts, or heads, to King Henry. Will Parliament survive gunpowder, treason and plot and can King Charles keep his head?

This is the horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in.

Horrible Histories, Live on Stage, plays at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool, from Wednesday, March 26, to Sunday, March 30. Wednesday and Thursday 1.30pm and 7pm, Friday at 10.30am and 7pm, Saturday at 2.30pm and 7pm and Sunday at 11am amd 3pm

Tickets available from £16 for adults, £12 for children and schools groups from £7.
