Anyone who has split their sides laughing at CBBC’s award-winning Horrible Histories series now has the chance to see and hear the cast perform some of the most popular songs from the show, ranging from the Savage Stone Age and the Vicious Vikings to the Gorgeous Georgians and the Vile Victorians.

Aurora joins the Horrible Histories cast, children’s choirs, and BBC Radio 3 presenter Louise Fryer for a concert which intersperses new orchestral arrangements of the best of the songs from the series with a host of repertoire including music by Lully, Mozart, Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Bernstein.

Horrible Histories, based on the best-selling books by Terry Deary with illustrations by Martin Brown, has proved a massive success. Children love the series, and the songs (music by Richie Webb) have proved among the most memorable elements of the show. Come to see the stars and sing along!

Following the success of the first-ever signed Prom last year, Dr Paul Whittaker, Artistic Director of Music and the Deaf, returns to guide you through this free Prom.
