Wizzo's Rip-Roaring History
Saturday 29th June 17:30 (45 Min)
Wizzo’s Rip-Roaring History is an old-time circus sideshow where the stars are the props and extraordinary stories. Abs ‘Wizzo’ Wisdom brings his excitement for history front and centre to you! Think Heath Robinson meets Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and throw in a generous helping of audience participation and Crystal Maze eccentricity. Colourful? Yes. Educational? Certainly. Rip-roaring? Absolutely!

We are all familiar with the Christmas truce of 1914, but an even more remarkable story unfolded in the skies above Germany during the festive season in 1943. It’s a story of loss, avenging anger, vulnerability, compassion and ultimately friendship, set against the icy blast of a daylight bombing raid gone badly wrong, and the American flyers who witness a Christmas miracle unfolding in the unlikeliest of circumstances.
