A spokesman for Horrible Histories - Horrible Christmas said: “When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day - but can he save Christmas?

“From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, Horrible Histories take you on a hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas as they all join forces to save the festive season.

“Horrible Christmas is full of jokes, songs and hysterical historical facts.

“It’s great entertainment for all the family from ages five to 105.”
