Come to mummy

Horrible Histories will be staged in Nottingham and Sheffield
Horrible Histories will be staged in Nottingham and Sheffield

We all want to meet people from history – the trouble is, everyone is dead!

So actors will be reviving The Awful Egyptians and The Ruthless Romans in a Horrible Histories rampage coming to a theatre near you.

In Awful Egyptians you’ll learn the truth of Tutankhamun and his creepy curse and find out the fearsome facts about phabulous pharaohs, mean mummies and gruesome grave robbers.

In Ruthless Romans you’ll find out how the Romans made murder into a sport in the Colosseum. With incredible Bogglevision effects you’ll feel what it was really like to be a Roman soldier in the greatest army ever seen – but watch out for those flaming arrows whizzing straight for your head!

Horrible Histories comes to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal on June 21-25 and Sheffield’s Lyceum Theatre on July 6-9.
