We’ve been to Warwick Castle before when they have had the Horrible Histories crew there. It’s a great match: the medieval castle is the perfect backdrop for some Horrible Histories fun. This half term the Horrible Histories returns and you can be part of it.
Tthis year marks the first ever stage show, ‘Wicked Warwick’, to be specially scripted for Warwick Castle and brought to life in partnership with The Birmingham Stage Company. To celebrate this the Warwick Castle team are inviting members of the public to join in with the chance to win a one-time cameo in ‘Wicked Warwick’ by auditioning for ‘The W Factor at Warwick Castle.’ ‘The W Factor at Warwick Castle’ parodies a format familiar to lots of TV viewers, offering an great opportunity for budding stage stars and history lovers of any age to ‘audition’ for a one-time cameo in a performance of ‘Wicked Warwick’ this half term. Are you up for it?
