Hysterical history from Pantaloons

History of Britain at Kettering Arts Centre

The Pantaloons Theatre Company brings a fast-paced race through this nation’s history to Kettering Arts Centre later this month.

The show The History of Britain has an inventive take on the important events of the past few hundred years with Harold II, William the Conqueror, Henry VIII and Queen Victoria making appearances.

The History of Britain is packed full of songs, sketches and silliness and is suitable for all ages.

The Pantaloons began life 10 years ago as an open-air theatre company, busking plays for donations in parks and on the streets, where they developed an attention-grabbing, interactive and playful performance style.

Founding member Mark Hayward said: “We take well-loved tales, in this case stories from history, and give them a contemporary twist.

The show is on at the Kettering Arts Centre in St Andrew’s Church, on the corner of Rockingham Road and Lindsay Street, on July 10.

Tickets costing £10 (£9 concessions) are available from Waterstones, Kettering, or online via the website at ketteringartscentre.com clicking through via the linkto We Got Tickets.
