Returning on May 22nd, there’s never been a better time to book your tickets to the event rated as London’s favourite immersive experience, ranked #16 of all London nightlife on Tripadvisor, and winner of a prestigious THEA award. With every detail personally approved by the artist himself, Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience puts reality on hold. Step into a custom-created venue at 56 Leadenhall Street, and prepare for a mind-blowing synthesis of live actors, virtual reality, volumetric holograms and sensational next-generation 5D effects – all soundtracked by nine remastered tracks from the seminal double-album. 

Unlike theatre, cinema or live music, you won’t just spectate but dive deep into the action, during a two-hour adventure that rattles every sense. With production from Layered Reality UK, step back to 1898 and lose yourself in 24 extraordinary scenes, from the first sighting of the capsules to the terrifying touchdown of 300-foot Martian overlords and London’s evacuation. Run, crawl, hide and survive across 22,000 square-feet of immersive landscape that flows from the Royal Observatory to eerie deserted houses. Escape London by boat or even fly to Mars – with a little help from 17 memorable characters including Ogilvy and the Artilleryman, twelve live actors and a digital cast that features West End star Carrie Hope Fletcher (Heathers, Les Misérables, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and Tom Brittney (Grantchester, Make Me Famous).

Back on terra firma, you’ll unwind with a Martian-themed cocktail in The Spirit of Man Bar or Red Weed Interval Bar – safe in the knowledge that all government approved COVID safety measures are in place. Plus, for added peace of mind, every ticket to Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is protected by a COVID booking guarantee, offering a flexible, no-quibble cancellation, rebooking and refund policy that lets you order with complete confidence.
