Do something totally different this festive season.

"Talk about an immersive experience, along with funny, scary and such entertaining team taking you through, an experience that you will remember for a long long time." Finn D- TripAdvisor


2. The Perfect Way to Spend Quality Time With Loved Ones
When you're catching up with friends you want to guarantee a great night.
You'll laugh together (or at each other), jump out of your skins and share a Christmas get together like no other.

Enjoy chatting over Martian themed cocktails in our Steampunk inspired bar & restaurant before or after the show.

"My friends and I had the best time at The War of The Worlds! It was fun, engaging and even fairly active. Would highly recommend for friends or families." Whit - TripAdvisor


3. You'll Swap Mariah for Martians
Escape the relentless Christmas Songs and swap ‘Last Christmas’ with Heat Rays and Martians this festive season.

Instead of ‘Jingle Bells’, be wowed by the international hits exclusively remixed and remastered by Jeff Wayne for The Immersive Experience including Forever Autumn and The Eve of The War.

"Virtual reality was great... All accompanied by Jeff Wayne’s mesmerising soundtrack. A great experience" John T via TripAdvisor


4. Face The Ghosts of Christmas Past
You'll travel back in time to 1898; Victorian England.

Meet The Journalist George Herbert, as he takes you back to journey through the Martian invasion.

"Absolutely brilliant! Can't remember the last time I screamed and laughed so much. It is all so cleverly done. We were a party of 6 adults from age range 20s to 50s and all of us loved it." Claire B
