Horrible Histories - Best of Barmy Britain Customer Reviews

4.6 / 5 (16)
4 September

The show was great and the enjoyable for adults and children. However, even though the theatre was catering for children with this show, there were no booster seats available so it was difficult for some of the smaller children to see the stage.

2 September

The actors were great and very talented great fun to watch!

29 August

Was OK. Doesn't bear much relation to style of TV show; this was two people in variety of costumes. Set was basic. Well acted and sung, but not as accessible for children as very fast and wordy.

21 August

Absolutely excellent however very disappointed so short. Needed an interval and another hr with both wars covered. 2 actors superb and pantomime like LOL

16 August

Really great show both for the children and adults. Some of the jokes are aimed at the adults so everyone was entertained for the whole show. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
