Horrible Histories is set to celebrate 25 years of foul facts with a visit to High Wycombe this month.

The first Horrible Histories books were published in 1993 and now, Horrible Histories Live on Stage will take centre stage at Wycombe Swan from November 6-10.

There is a chance to catch the Terrible Tudors and Awful Egyptians in two hilarious shows featuring eye-popping 3D special effects.

In Terrible Tudors, take a trip through the horrible Henries to the end of evil Elizabeth and hear the legend (and the lies) about the torturing Tudors.

Find out the fate of Henry’s headless wives and his punch up with the Pope. Meet Bloody Mary and see Ed fall dead in his bed. Survive the Spanish Armada as it sails into the audience.

Awful Egyptians invites you to meet the fascinating Pharaohs, gasp at the power of the pyramids and discover the foul facts of death and decay with the meanest mummies in Egypt.

Are you ready to rumble with Ramesses the Great? Do you dare enter through the Gates of the Afterlife? It’s the history of Egypt with the nasty bits left in.

And the productions feature special effects, including 3D effects called bogglevision. Among an array of 3D illusions, audiences will see the Spanish Armada firing cannonballs into the auditorium or the Mummy reaching out to grab them.

Horrible Histories Live on Stage is written by Terry Deary, from his bestselling Horrible Histories books and is directed by Neal Foster.
