The immersive show is set to return in March 2021.
Combining Jeff Wayne’s music and H G Wells’ Victorian story, the immersive experience of The War of the Worlds is set to open in London once more in March next year.
In order to create the experience Wayne teamed up with digital entertainment company Layered Reality to create the immersive piece in 2019. The two hour experience includes a Steampunk bar/restaurant, a full kilometer of movie sets, virtual and augmented reality moments, 5D effects and appearances from Justin Hayward, Nathan Kames and Ricky Wilson.
In addition to this, there will be interactive hologram appearances from Tom Brittney (Grantchester), Anna-Marie Wayne (The War of the Worlds Live) and Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Misérables), with twelve real-life actors also present.
With journalist George Herbert as your guide, you’re transported back to 1898. Feel all senses fired as you crawl, slide and weave your way through 24 extraordinary scenes, experiencing first hand the fear and destruction of the Martian invasion.
You’re not just watching. It’s happening and you’re part of the story: from the sighting of the first capsule to the arrival of 300 foot Martian Fighting Machines and London’s evacuation.
You’ll visit the Royal Observatory, sneak into a deserted house, escape London by boat and even fly to Mars – all with Jeff Wayne’s multi award-winning musical version of The War of The Worlds as your soundtrack!
The experience will feature all the relevant Covid-safety rules.
