Horrible Histories – foul facts, deadly drawing and horribly historical fun!

Rotten Roman? Gorgeous Georgian? No, it’s Martin Brown, illustrator of Horrible Histories! Since 1993, Horrible Histories has been filling children’s heads with foul facts and is the world’s bestselling children’s history series. With the award-winning TV series in its sixth season, the longest-running children’s stage show in the West End and national exhibitions, Horrible Histories is a phenomenon.

Join Martin to find out more about the horrible history of art, see him draw live, tell stories and jokes … and take suggestions from the audience. Come and get inspired to draw by this fun family show.

Martin’s latest books are Horrible Histories: Crackin’ Castles (out now) and Martin Brown’s Lesser Spotted Animals (out in October).
