Due to huge demand, we’ve added an extra performance of this event on Wednesday 10 September. The shows on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 September are now sold out.

Cult theatre company and comedy duo LipService return to their stand up roots in The Hysterical Historical Show – a whacky whirlwind tour of Britain’s female national treasures.

Meet notorious gossip Mrs Gaskell and her timid friend Charlotte Bronte, learn about Marie Stopes and her little known friendship with Scott of the Antarctic, stage a protest with the ever radical Pankhursts, meet Georgian housekeeper and inventor of cuppa soup Elizabeth Raffald, Annie Horniman, creator of the modern repertory theatre and many more.

Nothing is sacred. But we hope you have been paying attention because there will be a quiz, not a very serious one, with points – and points mean prizes. Part sketch show, part pub quiz this show has all the ingredients of a fun night out.
