Good King Wenceslas, celebrated in the carol of the same name, was actually a duke not a king. In AD 929 Wenceslas of Bohemia spread Christianity throughout his country. This annoyed his mother and brother who met him at a church door and chopped Wenceslas to pieces – he didn’t do a lot of gathering winter fuel after that! In 1975 Werner Erhard sent a record number of Christmas cards – 62,824. Bet his arm ached after signing ‘love from Werny’ so many times! Our family have previously enjoyed seeing the Terrible Tudors and the brilliant Barmy Britain series in London’s West End. The latest show Horrible Christmas has been visiting the Barbican Theatre London over Christmas, as well as Birmingham Symphony Hall and The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Birmingham Stage Company has been producing Horrible Histories live on stage for nine years, but one of our most successful shows Barmy Britain started out as a show for Lollibop [the UK’s largest children’s festival] in Regent’s Park, for which we put together some of our favourite scenes for a 40 minute performance. William the Conqueror thought Christmas Day 1066 would be a good day to have his coronation. All his lords watching inside Westminster Abbey gave a huge cheer when the crown was put on William’s head but unfortunately the guards outside thought there was a rebellion going on and started burning down all the houses in the area giving the population of London a real roasting Christmas!

A week later Nimax Theatres called us and asked if we wanted to bring Horrible Histories into the West End and I realised that Barmy Britain would be the perfect vehicle. Inspired by Tommy Cooper, when he used hats and props to create multiple characters, Terry Deary and I wrote four new scenes and Barmy Britain was born! We had no idea it was going to evoke such a fantastic response and it became the longest running children’s show in West End history!
