SOME 'Gorgeous Georgians' and 'Vile Victorians' are coming to Wem this month, courtesy of the hugely-popular Horrible Histories.

The popular show – based on the successful run of children's history books by author Terry Deary – will be at Wem's Soulton Hall for the second year running, with two shows on Sunday, June 20.

The story – adapted by Deary himself with Neal Foster, who is directing, will feature Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Queen Victoria in what promises to be a fun-filled show.

A spokesman said: "This hilarious hit show is a gag-filled gallop through two centuries of British history with two amazing actors playing multiple historical roles.

"This will be the second year that Horrible Histories has played at this magnificent location after the huge success of 2020’s Barmy Britain show.

"Are you ready to swing with a Georgian king? Can you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot?

"Dare you dance the Tyburn jig? Will you be saved by Florence Nightingale? Find out what a baby farmer did and move to the groove with party Queen Victoria!

"This fantastic show will entertain all ages with its hysterical historical journey through British history – perfect entertainment for those aged from 5 to 105."

There are two shows at Soulton Hall, one at 2pm (where there is limited availability) and one at 4.30pm, and for tickets, head to

Running time is 65 minutes, approximately.
