You can enjoy Victorian villains and Medieval monks in a hair-raising adventure through the history of Christmas in the company of Charles Dickens, Oliver Cromwell, King Henry VIII and Father Christmas at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

The Horrible Histories Christmas production runs until January 9.

When Christmas comes under threat from a jolly man dressed in red, it's up to one young boy to save the day.
