Spokesman Warren Higgins said: “This hilarious hit show is a gag-filled gallop through two centuries of British history with two amazing actors playing multiple historical roles!

“Are you ready to swing with a Georgian king? Can you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Dare you dance the Tyburn jig? Will you be saved by Florence Nightingale? Find out what a baby farmer did and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria!

“These are just some of the fascinating characters audiences will discover in this splendiferously-funny 65-minute show– history with the nasty bits left in!

“Gorgeous Georgians & Vile Victorians is written by Terry Deary and Neal Foster from Deary’s bestselling Horrible Histories books. Terry Deary is the world’s bestselling non-fiction author for children and one of the most popular children’s authors in the country. He has written 200 books which have been translated into 42 different languages. His 50 Horrible Histories titles have sold over 35 million copies worldwide from China to Brazil.”

Neal Foster, director, Birmingham Stage Company, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing our special production about Georgians and Victorians to car parks around the country. We’re sure the Victorians would have been proud of our ingenuity, even though we’ll be telling horrible and hilarious stories about our illustrious ancestors.”

Having staged their covid-safe production to delighted audiences last summer and then helping thousands of families plug the panto-less gap with Horrible Christmas, Birmingham Stage Company and Coalition Agency are delighted to be on the road.

“Car Park Party know this fantastic show will entertain all ages with its hysterical historical journey through the barmiest bits of British history,” Warren added.

“Car Park Party is brought to you by Birmingham Stage Company and concept creators, Coalition Agency.
