Gorgeous Georgians and vile Victorians took to the streets of Belfast this week ahead of Horrible Histories: Live On Stage at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.

Cast members of the live production got up to no end of mischief in advance of the production, which runs from tomorrow to Wednesday, August 14.

Set in the castle's gardens, the show promises to uncover centuries of grisly history.

It is ideal for families with children aged from 7-14, but can be enjoyed by all ages.

Running twice a day, performances last for one hour and visitors are encouraged to soak up the festival atmosphere with a dedicated food pop-up serving a range of goodies sourced from the castle's Georgian walled garden.

Horrible Histories is included in garden admission tickets and family tickets are available.

It's free for Historic Royal Palaces members.
