Introducing 'the next level of theatre'

Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is a new, completely unique award-winning event where live actors, virtual reality and sensational 5D effects place you INSIDE the action – set to Jeff Wayne’s multi-platinum Musical Version of The War of The Worlds as your soundtrack!

Described as the 'future of entertainment' (DesignMyNight), the experience is feature length (2 hours long!) and takes you through 24 extraordinary interactive scenes. You'll visit the Royal Observatory on Horsell Common, sneak into George Herbert's deserted house, and even escape London by boat! Along the way you'll meet 12 live actors and a digital cast, including Carrie Hope Fletcher (Jeff Wayne's TWOTW Arena Tour, Heathers, Les Miserables, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and Tom Brittney (Grantchester, Make Me Famous).
