HIT children's comedy Horrible Histories is coming to Redditch this weekend.

The stage version of the popular books and TV series hits the stage at the Palace Theatre on Saturday October 9.

Gorgeous Georgians and Vile Victorians will see a host of historical figures recreated on stage to bring history to life.

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

"Don’t miss this horrible history of Britain with the nasty bits left in!"

The show takes place at 2pm and 6pm and tickets are on sale now at the Palace Theatre website and at the box office.
