Horrible Histories Awful Egyptians

I read a few mind-blowing facts the other day that totally challenged my perception of time. For example, Cleopatra lived closer in time to the invention of Snapchat than to the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza! She died about 2,000 years ago in 30 BC, while the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed around 2560 BC. Another one is that woolly mammoths were still alive when the Great Pyramid at Giza was built. The pyramid was about 1,000 years old when the mammoths went extinct completely around about 1560 BC.

If your kids are as fascinated about Ancient Egypt as mine, they will be thrilled to join the HORRIBLE HISTORIES team on a sixty minute adventure in awful Egypt! Discover the foul facts of death and decay with the meanest mummies in town – find out why they made their mummies and how they did it!  With songs and participation, there’s no better way to learn about Egypt than an hour with the HORRIBLE HISTORIES team! It’s History with the nasty bits left in!

And that’s not all! KidsFest 2017 will be showcasing a total of NINE world-class productions adapted from best-selling children’s books from 11th January to 12th February 2017.
