Watch out Abergavenny HORRIBLE HISTORIES is bringing some famous names to Abergavenny Castle Grounds on Wednesday 28th July at 2:30pm & 6:30pm!

It’s true! Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Queen Victoria are on their way to town! They all feature in HORRIBLE HISTORIES–GORGEOUS GEORGIANS & VILE VICTORIANS which calls in at the Grounds of Abergavenny Castle as part of a British tour.

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 that is suitable for ages 5 upwards – history with the nasty bits left in!
Gorgeous Georgians & Vile Victorians is written by Terry Deary and Neal Foster from Deary’s best-selling Horrible Histories books. Terry Deary is the world's best-selling 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!
