When launched in the summer of 2020, Car Park Party quickly became the nation’s favourite family drive in event with Horrible Histories’ Barmy Britain shows. Then, it helped save Christmas for families with widely successful Car Park Panto, performing Horrible Christmas, to 40,000 family members in their cars across 16 wintery towns and cities.

Over the past year, children have had to miss out on live arts, Easter however, is the perfect time to begin bringing live theatre to families up and down the country; while the UK is continuing its fight against the pandemic and we can begin to slowly emerge from our bubbles.

Billionaire Boy started life as a David Walliams novel for children in 2010, published by HarperCollins Children’s Books. In 2016 it was adapted into a BBC production and has since become a firm Christmas television favourite.

Billionaire Boy tells the story of Joe Spud, who is twelve years old and the richest boy in the country. He has his own sports car, £100k a week pocket money and two crocodiles as pets. But what Joe doesn’t have is a friend. So he decides to leave his posh school and start at the local comprehensive. But things don’t go as planned for Joe and life becomes a rollercoaster as he tries find the one thing money can’t buy.

David Walliams said:
“I am delighted that families will have the opportunity to see some live theatre again. The show is hilarious and I hope spreads some happiness in these difficult times.”

HORRIBLE HISTORIES – BARMY BRITAIN features Queen Boudicca, King Henry VIII, Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin, Queen Victoria and more historical characters from our barmy past!

Neal Foster, Actor/Director, Birmingham Stage Company says:
“I’m over the moon to be back on tour with Barmy Britain after it’s hugely successful tour last summer. It’s weird and wonderful to be performing in car parks and to see the audience having fun behind their windshields. We can’t wait to get back out there”.

Car Park Party know this fantastic show will entertain all ages with its hysterical historical journey through the barmiest bits of British history!
