The Pantaloons' History of Britain (2014)

Mud, blood and stiff upper-lips!

It's the History of Britain as you've never seen it before. Join the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company for a breathless race through the centuries in this delightfully inventive open-air show.

Harold II and William the Conqueror don't see eye to eye. Henry VIII decides five marriages just isn't enough. Queen Victoria is most certainly not amused.

This historitcally hysterical show is packed with songs, sketches and silliness and is suitable for all ages.

"An energetic and playful romp through the centuries" (Mail on Sunday)

"Horrible Histories meets the Reduced Shakespeare Company... Genius. *****" (Gloucestershire Echo)

Our tour dates are listed below. All performances take place in the open-air and continue in all weather bar a full-blown tempest.

The open-air theatre event of all time
