Using actors and eye-popping 3D special effects, these astounding shows are guaranteed to thrill you and your children.

Horrible Histories - Awful Egyptians

AWFUL EGYPTIANS: From the fascinating Pharaohs to the power of the pyramids, discover the foul facts of death and decay with the meanest mummies in Egypt. Are you ready to rumble with Ramesses the Great? Dare you enter through the Gates of the afterlife?

Both shows are incredibly lively fun and genuinely educational. I loved it and you'd surely love it too!

It’s the history of Egypt with the nasty bits left in!

Also showing: Terrible Tudors

Not originally intended to be a theatre, the buildings that comprise the Grand Opera House York officially opened in 1902 with Little Red Riding Hood starring Florrie Ford. Since then it has been owned by FJ Butterworth, the Shepherd of Shambles and the India Pru Co. Ltd who spent £4,000,000 restoring the theatre to its former glory in 1987.
