Have a Horrible Christmas at the Lowry 

Horrible Christmas
Wed 7 December 2016 – Sun 8 January 2017

Salford is in for a treat this Christmas with a special production of Horrible Histories – Horrible Christmas playing at The Lowry (Wed 7 December 2016 to Sun 8 January 2017). 

Birmingham Stage Company, the producers behind the celebrated Horrible Histories stage productions and David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny, are bringing the show to The Lowry for a four week run over the festive season.

The cast includes Salford resident Lauryn Redding in the role of private detective, Shirley Holmes. 

Lauryn Redding said,”I love theatre for young people. They are so honest. – even more so with a show like Horrible Histories. You can’t do a half job; you have to work hard all the time! And you earn the laughs, you earn the silence, and earn the applause – more so than with a standard theatre audience. So its going to be great playing clever old Shirley Holmes in Horrible Christmas at the Lowry this year in front of hundreds of children – can’t wait! ”

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, Horrible Histories take you on a 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!

In true Horrible Histories style, Horrible Christmas is packed with jokes, songs and hysterical historical facts to celebrate Christmas in the most wonderful, funny and moving way you’ll ever see. It’s perfect entertainment for all the family – and for everyone from ages 5 to 105!

Horrible Christmas is directed by Neal Foster (original director Phil Clark), designed by Jackie Trousdale with music by Matthew Scott, lighting by Jason Taylor, sound by Tom Lishman and choreography by Rae Piper and Paul Chantry.
