Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Queen Victoria are on their way to Wellingborough to star in Horrible Histories – Gorgeous Georgians & Vile Victorians from Thursday, June 24, to Saturday, June 26, as part of a British tour.

This hilarious hit show is a gag-filled gallop through two centuries of British history with two amazing actors playing multiple historical roles!

Are you ready to swing with a Georgian king? Can you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Dare you dance the Tyburn jig? Will you be saved by Florence Nightingale? Find out what a baby farmer did and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria!

These are just some of the fascinating characters audiences will discover in this splendiferously funny 65 minute show– history with the nasty bits left in!
