A Complete History of London Show, London

4.4
#506 of 1,211 in Nightlife in London
A Complete History of London is a staged show which, in one hour, humorously tells the story from when the capital was covered by ocean 50 million years ago to the London we currently know.

There are appearances from invaders like the Romans, Vikings and Danes, royals such as Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, revolters like Wat Tyler, Jack Cade and Guy Fawkes as well as non-historical 'real' Londoners.

The audience is comically and inventively informed about the development London went through to become the city we know today and the play leaves spectators with a true sense of what life was like for Londoners through time.
