Horrible Histories proudly presents the terrific tale of Christmas in a special production of Horrible Christmas!

When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas? From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on an hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas as they all join forces to save the festive season!

It's a celebration of Christmas in the most wonderful, funny and moving way you'll ever see!

"This is that rare gem of a family show that genuinely appeals to all ages from four years old upwards. If you think you know about Christmas, this show will make you think again!"
Manchester Theatre Awards

"What a fantastic show! Just the right mix of humour, facts about Christmas, singing and audience participation. Highly recommended if your kids like Horrible Histories or if you want to try an excellent alternative to the panto."

"We all thoroughly enjoyed the entire show. I can’t think of many times when my nine year old has been quite so animated. Come to think of it, I don’t recall the last time I was either!"
That Lancashire Lass

"An absolutely fantastic show and a great opportunity for our family to spend some fun time together at Christmas. I was howling with laughter at one point and our two girls, aged six and four, loved it!"
Expression & Confession

"A celebration of Christmas unlike any you'll have seen before! A whistlestop tour through the history of Yuletide with great gags, visual comedy and a script that cleverly weaves fact with fun. The perfect show for all ages!"
