"The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one" - Professor Ogilvy
In this unique Martian adventure, you'll experience two hours of complete immersion in the songs you love. It's as if you're stepping inside your favourite songs and seeing them come to life all around you.
Thousands of Jeff Wayne fans like you have already experienced surviving the Martian invasion and lived to tell the tale.
As @insubstantium writes on Tripadvisor, "If you turned the pages of the booklet in the double LP with reverence... this is for you. If you have any love for the genius of Jeff Wayne, you simply MUST go and see this... Sheer elation - at how much fun it was to be 'inside' a story I know so well. Thank you thank you thank you.....".
It's open day at Horsell Common Royal Observatory, and you're one of the lucky visitors. Step inside and let Professor Ogilvy (Head Astronomer) show you the stars. But don't get too comfortable, you might have to make a hasty exit...
"It built up from good to unbelievably good. The event was faithful to Jeff Wayne’s version and to the original H.G. Wells book. The music is still going through my head weeks later. Well worth the trip."

"This is a great adventure, from the moment you enter the building you're immersed into the world of H.G. Wells and Jeff Wayne. The iconic music that you would have heard for years in the settings of the common, the church and more whisk you away for an amazing 2 hour experience. Spot on special effect, sets, light and sound as well as the cast help make this a delight."

Take a trip out to sea with us in 360 Virtual Reality, and witness the iconic naval battle - Thunder Child vs The Martians.
Feel the cool sea air and the spray of the water as you take a front row seat at man's last hope for victory.
"What a unique and entertaining experience! Beautifully themed throughout, fun, interactive and at times terrifying but never dull! Give it a go especially if you're a fan of Jeff Wayne's TWOTW Music - and let's face it- who isn't? Highly recommended."

"The bit with the Thunder Child... won't spoil it, but it did bring a tear to my eye seeing one of the musical's best moments brought to life."

Meet the Artilleryman and follow him through the trenches on a daring escape to London. Later, hear about all his plans for a Brave New World. With the world you know so well collapsing above you, is it time for humanity to retreat underground?
"This was by far the best immersive experience I have been to. Left feeling completely charged and wanted to do it all over again. It is pure escapism, everything has been designed so well, the actors are amazing and it really thrills all the senses. Anyone that likes the music from war of the worlds or just enjoys an adventure will love this."

Come face to face with 300ft Martian Fighting Machines as they tear through London. Be warned, there are reports of them taking on another form, of a squat, metallic spider, a Handling Machine which catches people . Be careful they don't grab you...
"You'll love the experience, live actors, Virtual Reality, boat trips, balloon rides, flame, fire and heat - and prodded by Martians!"
