Horrible Histories Christmas Show

16/12/2016

It’s was a celebration of Christmas in the most wonderful, wildly funny and moving way ever seen!

“When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas? From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on an hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII, St Nicholas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer as they all join forces to save the festive season!”

A group of Year 7 students were taken to see the Horrible Histories Christmas show at the Lowry Theatre in Salford, as a reward for their excellent effort, enthusiasm and behaviour in History lessons this term.

Both students and staff were very excited and when they arrived early had some time to take photographs of the stunning buildings and scenery which surrounds the Lowry Theatre.

In the theater, whilst waiting for the production to start, the students were clearly the best behaved school group there, waiting patiently and talking quietly. The production was fully interactive with the audience booing the bad guy and cheering on the good guy. There were interactive songs, with actions and lots of the traditional pantomime “he’s behind you!”.

Cleverly the production used dolls which appeared from the audience and zip lined onto the stage and other dolls who flew along the back wall which the students loved.

It was an amazing event which was enjoyed by both students and staff, and again showcased the excellent behaviour of our students.
