A Horrible time is in store

Thousands of years after the Ruthless Romans, Savage Saxons and Vicious Vikings stormed ashore on the coast of Britain and the Gruesome Greeks competed in the first ever Olympic Games, you can relive those horribly exciting times.

In Incredible Invaders, the Celts are crunched when the Ruthless Romans invade Britain. Can crazy Caractacus save the nation? Hide behind Hadrian’s Wall and witness the Savage Saxons smash their way in.

Can you stop King Alfred burning his buns? Discover who is at Sutton Hoo and survive the Vicious Vikings as they sail into the audience. It’s a thousand year journey with Incredible Invaders!

Groovy Greeks takes us from savage Sparta to angry Athens to discover the truth about growing up in Greece.

Take on the Trojans and pummel the Persians! Compete in the first ever Olympic Games and appear in the very first play! Meet your match with the Minotaur and be zapped by Zeus! Hold on tight as you gatecrash the gruesome and Groovy Greeks!

It’s history with the nasty bits left in.

Writer and Director Neal Foster said of the two new shows: “I had a hugely exciting time bringing the Groovy Greeks to life in Horrible Histories style and loved shining the spotlight on Celtic, Roman, Saxon and Viking life in Incredible Invaders.

“Both shows feature special amazing 3D effects that provide a spectacular way for both children and adults to enter these extraordinary historical periods.”

Based on Terry Deary’s best-selling books - which spawned a popular and award-winning TV series - these shows are not to be missed.
