of Britain


Travel through the whole history of our wonderful nation in just 60 minutes.


3 actors, 10,000 years and lots and lots of costume changes make this show fun and educational.

Using a variety of styles, from chat show to panto and children's TV to musical theatre, we transport your children from the Stone Age right the way up to Brexit, covid-19 and King Charles III.


What does it mean to be British? Find out in this hugely enjoyable show.


Suitable for both KS1 and KS2.

"The performance was produced to a high standard and engaged all pupils. It was age appropriate for LKS2 and UKS2, keeping all children engaged and entertained.


During the performance the actors were fast moving and energetic. They interacted with the pupils and asked for pupil interaction.


At the end of the show children were able to successfully order the historical events. This demonstrated their understanding of their new learning.


Overall it was an extremely enjoyable performance."

Lauren Mason, Harrowgate Hill Primary School

"Very energetic performance! The change in styles kept the children engaged.


Very thoughtful set design allowed for minimal disruption to the flow of the performance.


All major parts of the Primary history curriculum covered.


Thank you so much, a very entertaining and informative show."

Katie Henson, Milwards Primary School

"Please pass on my thanks to the actors who came to perform ‘The History of Britain’ with us this morning. They were fantastic!


The boys were laughing all the way through and came away buzzing, so thank you very much!


They were very prompt and super organised, which made our school History Day go as smoothly as anticipated, so I’m hugely grateful to the Hobgoblins for this!


No doubt we’ll be welcoming you here again soon."

"I watched one of your performances at our school (to Years 5 & 6) and much enjoyed it.


From the perspective of a History teacher and trying to give children of this young age a ‘sense of time’ it was great to have this delivered to them through a fun and varied medium.


I hope this show really has helped many the children to get the ‘bigger picture’ of British chronology.


I have already found a couple of my Y6 children referring back to your performance in my lessons."

James Timmis, Cumnor House School
