Meanwhile, the fabulous West End show Terrible Tudors makes its return to the Garrick Theatre in July and August for a rip-roaring journey through the most infamous family in British history. Dare you dabble with Henry Tudor and his son King Henry VIII? Will you survive your encounter with his daughters Queen Mary I and Queen Elizabeth I? Can you save his little son King Edward VI? This fearsome family ruled England for more than a hundred years and in this hour long show you’ll experience all the highlights, including singing with Shakespeare, fighting the Spanish Armada and joining King Henry as he looks for a new wife! Terrible Tudors broke box office records in 2022, so don’t miss your chance to enjoy its second sensational season this summer. It’s history with the nasty bits left in, from the fantastic team of Horrible Histories!
