Birmingham Stage Company present Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors, coming to Corn Exchange Newbury on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 July

Henry VIII along with his many wives and Queen Elizabeth I are on their way to Newbury! This hit show is a gag-filled gallop through one of the most famous and bloody eras of British history, with two actors playing multiple historical roles.
