Ensonglopedia of British History
Cancelled due to Coronavirus.
We’re hoping to reschedule for the autumn. Please watch for updates – or subscribe to our email list here.
Ensonglopedia of British History recounts the major events in our island’s history, from the point of view of a character who lives forever and does their best to provide for themselves and their family amid political turmoil, disease, industrialisation, and everything else that history has to throw at them.
This is not your usual trundle through Kings, Queens and prime ministers. This is history as lived by the common man and woman, armed with little more than a guitar and a sense of humour.
Suitable for all ages from 7 to adult.
“The brilliance of this show is that it is pitched perfectly, so that younger audience members have plenty to amuse them…[the] adults have plenty to admire in the lyrics… The songs are fantastically clever… His use of language, particularly the choice of rhymes, will delight anyone with even the vaguest interest in words.” ★★★★★ BROADWAY BABY
“What a treat for us all! The kids were enthralled – sword fights, dance moves, protests, foolishness. What could be better than that? Thanks, John, for a brilliant show.” MISS EAGLE – DITCHLING PRIMARY SCHOOL
“It was absolutely nice.” PUPIL AT DITCHLING PRIMARY SCHOOL
