Comedian, singer and guitarist, Anthony King, brings history, comedy and song
to Barrow on Friday March 16th at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Rd, Barrow LE12 8JU at 7.30pm.
Historical events will come alive along a timeline from 1066 to 2066. Even the present and the future don't escape in this full length show covering themes such as Richard III, Lady Jane Grey, The Great Fire, Agincourt and including a heavy slice of 'famous Leicester'. Read along with the timeline song 'kings and queens' and count the mistakes in the Magna Carta song. New topics are being added to the show all the time and Leicester’s own suffragette, Alice Hawkins, is the latest – commemorating the centenary of the 1918 act granting votes to women.
Here are some reviews from his earlier shows:
“My family and I were in Bradgate Park today (Sat 8, July) and were lucky enough to catch your show. You were brilliant! We thought you were very funny and your singing/playing was excellent. We'd have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks for being there and making a visit extra memorable”
"Terrific enrichment for students understanding of history! Highly recommended!" – Teacher
“Excellent charisma merged with clever lyrics about historical events. Anthony King is a brilliant artist with an incredible voice that captures your attention with humour and knowledge. Very well performed” (Grantham)
