Blackpool is in for a treat this Christmas with a special production of HORRIBLE HISTORIES - HORRIBLE CHRISTMAS playing at the Opera House Blackpool from 13 to 29 December 2019.

The producers behind the Olivier award nominated Gangsta Granny and the celebrated Horrible Histories stage shows, including Barmy Britain in the West End, are bringing this festive favourite to Blackpool for three weeks over the holiday period.
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, Horrible Histories take you on a 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!

Horrible Christmas is full of jokes, songs and hysterical historical facts. It’s great entertainment for all the family from ages 5 to 105 (106-year-olds may not like it).

Horrible Christmas is directed by Neal Foster (original director Phil Clark), designed by Jackie Trousdale with music by Matthew Scott, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Tom Lishman and choreography by Rae Piper and Paul Chantry.

So come and join us in a hair-raising adventure through the history of the festive season and help save us all from a Horrible Christmas!
