30min + Q&A

‘We are definitely amused!’ as the BFI National Archive’s newly-digitised collection of Victorian film gets the Horrible Histories treatment. Join trusty guide Rattus Rattus and HM Tricky Vicky herself for a very special episode about a time when moving pictures had just been invented and filmmakers would stop at nothing to get that shot. Members of the cast and creative team will present their latest electrifying excursion into our past.

Funday Workshop: Horrible Histories

11:00 AM, Foyer

This workshop for all the family – inspired by hit TV series Horrible Histories – will turn back the clock to the Victorian age. Try your hand at animation, perhaps draw a family portrait of you all as Victorian kings and queens, or invent your own horrible history? Join us in the BFI Southbank foyer for tons of fun.
