The pantomime will tell the story of a young boy trying to save Christmas and will also explore some of the history behind the festive season.

Audience members will have their tickets scanned through their car windows upon arrival at the outdoor venue.

Cars will then be parked more than two metres apart and audience members will watch the show from inside their vehicles, picking up sound from the performance via their radios.

Toilet facilities and food and drink will be available on site but social distancing measures will be in place.

Tickets for the show will be £45 per car (Birmingham Stage Company/PA)

Horrible Histories manager Neal Foster said:”We can’t wait to be back on stage in cities and towns that will be crying out for a Christmas show to entertain their families.”

The show will also visit Nottingham, Plymouth, Sheffield, Leeds, Leicester, Southampton, Exeter, Northampton and Chelmsford.

Venues and dates for the performances are yet to be announced.

Tickets for each show are priced at £45 per car.
