Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds is a classic work based upon HG Wells’ dark Victorian tale, with music by Jeff Wayne and lyrics by Gary Osborne, Paul Vigrass and Jeff Wayne.
On reading the novel, Jeff Wayne was inspired by the themes of Invasion, Faith and Hope and he began to create his Work in 1975. Since the day of its release, 9th June 1978, the double album has gone on to sell an astounding 16 million records and has enjoyed commercial and critical success worldwide.
Featuring two international hit singles, ‘The Eve of The War’ and ‘Forever Autumn’, the Musical Version has achieved prestigious accolades including two Ivor Novello Awards, US Best Recording in Science Fiction & Fantasy, judged by Alfred Hitchcock, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and UK’s Classic Showman of The Year Award which Jeff won for the 2006 debut arena tour.
Its extraordinary life has now spanned over forty years (and still counting!) across all media including records, publishing, video games, international arena tours, merchandise and now, the multi-sensory Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience.

We screamed, we laughed… Live actors, stunning sets, pyrotechnics and first class virtual reality, we were in it! Literally the best thing I’ve been to... We now cannot stop talking about it.
One of the most enjoyable experiences I can remember… my jaw ached from laughing and smiling so much! AMAZING!!! Overall it was incredible value for money, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!
Escapism at its best! Loved all of it - actors were terrific; such variety, excitement and pace, it kept you entertained throughout… The overall experience was awesome - best day out we’ve had in a long time! Thank you!
We’ve just climbed through windows, slid down slides, taken a boat ride on the Thames and a balloon to Mars. Immersive does not begin to describe it. Complete with the music and artwork from the original Jeff Wayne extravaganza… Two unforgettable hours.
Thrilling once in a lifetime experience. What a brilliant, immersive, truly exhilarating experience from start to finish… Excellent value for money. Thank you
This is by far the best thing I have done in years. In actual fact, I can't even compare the level of this experience to anything else… My partner and I had a wonderful time and will look back on this experience as one of our best. My advice to anyone thinking about going is, GO! You will not regret it.
We travelled from Pitlochry to see this and were not disappointed. Worth visiting for the story telling, the actors were great and the special effects right from the start… Brilliant fun.
The food was delicious (we had burgers and fries) and the drinks went down well too! The attention to detail in the whole venue added lots of atmosphere to the experience.
