There will be one interval

Anyone who has split their sides laughing at CBBC's hit television series Horrible Histories now has the chance to see and hear the cast perform some of the most popular songs from the show, ranging from the Savage Stone Age and the Vicious Vikings to the Gorgeous Georgians and the Vile Victorians.

Backed by children’s choirs and the Aurora Orchestra, the songs will be interspersed with some great music by composers such as King Henry VIII, Lully, Mozart and the prolific 'Anon'.

Horrible Histories, based on the best-selling books by Terry Deary with illustrations by Martin Brown, has proved a massive success. Children love the series, and the songs (music by Richie Webb) have proved among the most memorable elements of the show. Come to see the stars and sing along!

Following the success of the first-ever signed Prom last year, Dr Paul Whittaker, Artistic Director of Music and the Deaf, returns to guide you through this free Prom.

Prom 20 will be signed by Paul Whittaker OBE, Artistic Director of Music and the Deaf.

There will be a reserved Promming area in the Arena for deaf patrons and their companions with a clear view of the signer. All Promming queues will operate as normal and any customers wishing to view the signer should make themselves known to the steward once they have a ticket. They will then be escorted into the reserved area on a first come first served basis.

There will be BBC and Royal Albert Hall staff on hand to answer questions on the day.
