Histories of the Unexpected LIVE!
History and merriment for ages 8-108!
History as you’ve never seen it before in this fun for all the family historical extravaganza!
Who knew that the history of the smile is all about Charles Darwin and the history of electrocution? Or that the history of gloves is all about the beheading of Mary Queen of Scots? And what links together Pompeii, the Titanic, Neolithic cave painting, perfume, scalping, Horatio Nelson, Henry VIII, Hiroshima, the Duke of Wellington, razor-gangs, Shakespeare, mutiny, chimneys and a seventeenth century map of the world?
Expect mind-bending stories, shocking tales and fascinating relics as our Histories of the Unexpected duo rampage around the past, leaving no stone unturned (and no historical window unbroken) in their madcap mission to make sure that you never think about the past in the same way…ever again!
