After a string of successful car park-based performances earlier in the year, Car Park Party are back with a special festive production courtesy of the ever popular Horrible Histories.
A partnership between Birmingham Stage Company and Horrible Histories, Car Park Panto: Horrible Christmas is touring the UK throughout December 2020 and into January 2021 allowing socially distanced audiences to enjoy top-flight entertainment from the comfort of their own vehicles.
Discussing what audiences can expect, Horrible Histories actor and manager Neal Foster says: "As you'd expect from Horrible Histories, it's not a traditional pantomime, but a journey through the story of Christmas in the company of the season's most fabulous characters.
"It's the perfect story for families this winter, as one young boy battles to save Christmas for the world, in this hilarious, joyous and moving celebration."
Based on the best-selling books written by Terry Deary, The Birmingham Stage Company first launched Horrible Histories live on stage back in 2005 with the world premieres of Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians.
Since then the company has produced a hefty 18 different Horrible shows, performing to over three million people in the UK - including the longest-running children's show in West End history, with its record-breaking series Barmy Britain.
Also a worldwide phenomenon, Horrible Histories live on stage has been performed in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Qatar, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, New Zealand and Australia (where it performed in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House).
The UK Horrible Christmas tour, which sees two or three performances per date, includes performances in Coventry, Northampton, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Bath, Edinburgh and more - full dates below.
Tickets, priced £47 per sleigh (car) plus booking fees, are selling fast - with several dates already sold out - so quick booking is recommended.
