The Horrible Histories, Barmy Britain Show will be staged in the car park at the football club on April 16, with two shows, at 2pm and 5pm.

It has been produced by the Birmingham Stage Company and Coalition Agency, which put on similar car park parties last year.

Neal Foster, Actor/Director, of Birmingham Stage Company said: “I’m over the moon to be back on tour with Barmy Britain after it’s hugely successful tour last summer. It’s weird and wonderful to be performing in car parks and to see the audience having fun behind their windshields. We can’t wait to get back out there."

He said the entertainment would be loved by those aged from five to 105.

Horrible Histories Live on Stage is based on the bestselling books written by Terry Deary, illustrated by Martin Brown and published by Scholastic. It first launched in 2005 with the world premieres of Terrible Tudors & Vile Victorians. Since then, the Birmingham Stage Company has produced eighteen 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. Horrible Histories Live on Stage has also become a worldwide phenomenon, performing 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.
