Christmas in a car park? IT'S A CRACKER!

The world’s first drive-in Christmas show is returning to IWM Duxford on Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 December!

IWM Duxford Horrible Histories Drive In Panto

Horrible Histories return with a unique take on the festive season. HORRIBLE CHRISTMAS is the story of how Christmas came to be what it is today, encouraging families to enter the festive spirit in a safe, socially distanced manner, from the comfort of their own car!

When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it’s up to one young boy to save the day – but can he save Christmas? From Victorian villains to Medieval monks, Puritan parties to Tudor treats, join us on a hair‐raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and St Nicholas as they all join forces to save the festive season!

It's a celebration of Christmas in the most wonderful, funny and moving way you'll ever see!
