Bristol Airport to hold Horrible Histories drive-in Christmas show

Bristol Airport has announced that Car Park Panto, in partnership with the Birmingham Stage Company and Horrible Histories, will organise two performances of Horrible Christmas at the airport on December 19.

In response to increased demand from around the UK as many Christmas events are being cancelled due to Covid 19, Car Park Panto and others will hold a performance of Horrible Christmas at Bristol Airport on December 19.

Staging one of the most popular family festive highlights in a car park, Horrible Christmas presents the evolutionary story of Christmas celebrations, enabling families to enter into the festive spirit in a safe, socially distanced manner from the comfort of their own car. The live theatrical show through the history of Christmas will feature Victorian villains to medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, as well as prominent faces likes Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas.

Horrible Histories Actor-Manager Neal Foster of Birmingham Stage Company, said: ‘We were thrilled to be invited to take part in the run of Car Park Party events around the country and were overwhelmed by the response of the audience, who were clearly delighted and relieved to see actors live on stage again. I was totally surprised by just how well Car Park Theatre worked and loved the whole collective experience.’

‘We can’t wait to be back on stage in cities and towns that will be crying out for a Christmas show to entertain their families. As you’d expect from Horrible Histories, it’s not a traditional pantomime, but a journey through the story of Christmas in the company of the season’s most fabulous characters. It’s the perfect story for families this winter, as one young boy battles to save Christmas for the world, in this hilarious, joyous and moving celebration.’

Andrew Morris, Retail Operations Manager, Bristol Airport said, ‘We are delighted to be able to host CAR PARK PANTO, in partnership with the Birmingham Stage Company and Horrible Histories, two amazing performances of HORRIBLE CHRISTMAS at Bristol Airport on 19th December. This year more than ever families need to have the opportunity of enjoying theatre, entertainment and performances in a Covid safe way. This innovative approach will ensure that Christmas cheer and fun can be enjoyed by all the family.’

There are limited tickets for each show priced at £47 per car (£2.50 booking fee applies). Tickets and Terms are available at carparkparty.com.
