Oi! You! Think you know your history? Well you’ve got it all wrong, buster! Let us show you how things REALLY were! Churchill? Abe Lincoln? Guy Fawkes? BORING! Who you really want to know about is Janice, the village witch of Bognor Regis. Or Petunia, the true author of Bible? Or perhaps if Queen Liz the First was really short for Lizard? For the answers to all this and more, come to Horrible Herstories, where the women of history set the record straight!




Please note that this is a devised comedy show, so the below topics are likely to appear throughout:

Explicit language

Sexual references

Mentions/discussions of alcohol
