What to expect

Please be aware of government guidelines before setting off.

Government Guidelines
  • Get ready to cry with laughter (and maybe even learn a thing or two) at Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain live on stage at The Drive In at Troubadour Meridian Water in Enfield.
  • See some brilliant live theatre from your car this August, with tickets starting at £46 per vehicle.

Ever dream of meeting famous people from history? The only problem is, they're all dead! Catch this live theatre event at an awesome outdoor cinema venue and you’ll finally meet a whole host of characters from British history, including Queen Elizabeth I, Henry VIII, Richard III, Dick Turpin and Shakespeare. Not only will you learn a decent bit of history, but you will also discover the strangest, foulest, funniest and stinkiest parts of their lives.  

If you missed the last Horrible Histories tour, now’s your chance to take your kids to see this brilliant show at The Drive In. Based on the bestselling books written by Terry Deary and the subsequent programme on CBBC (which first aired in 2009), it has always been a huge hit with fans big and small. It’s a weird and wonderful show to make the whole family smile!

The Horrible Histories cast is made up of talented actors who definitely know how to bring the humour to history. With amazing 3D special effects and many foul facts, this show is guaranteed to bring historical events and figures to life. Your favourite characters will be performing some iconic Horrible Histories songs and you'll have the tunes in your head for days.

This is a brilliant way to get back to watching live entertainment on stage! The Drive In will also be screening some fantastic film screenings throughout the summer, including favourites Sonic the Hedgehog, Mary Poppins and Peter Rabbit.
