Horrible Histories: Awful Egyptians
Horrible Histories: Awful Egyptians

The Birmingham Stage Company return to The Capitol, Horsham, with five performances of Horrible Histories Awful Egyptians from Friday, June 21, to Sunday, June 23.

Using actors and 3D special effects, this show is guaranteed to give you a thrill from the crypt as historical figures and events come alive on stage.

You’ll learn the truth of Tutankhamen and his creepy curse and find out the fearsome facts about phabulous pharaohs, mean mummies and gruesome grave robbers.

You’ll see how the Egyptians really lived 5000 years ago – how dead bodies were turned into mummies and how the huge pyramids were built.

Are you ready to rumble with Ramesses the Great? Dare you enter through the Gates of the Afterlife?

Beware the Evil Eye of Horus – has it got its eye on you?

The show is adapted from Terry Deary’s best selling Horrible Histories books, which are hugely popular both on the page and on television. The BBC TV series has previously won both the British Comedy Award for best TV Sketch show and the RTS Best Children’s TV programme.

Treat your whole family to this great show and you’ll discover all the really ‘yucky’ bits of history that teachers and serious books never tell you.

To be enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105. Don’t forget your mummy.
