I like large parties – The Great Gatsby

Grab your feather boa, get on your dancing shoes, sink down a martini, and immerse yourself into the adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby where you will be transported back to the 1920’s into a world of jazz and debauchery.

This immersive interpretation of a well-loved American classic plunges audiences into an interactive performance, where you can dance, drink and even converse with the characters.

Double, double toil and trouble – The Cauldron

A magical cocktail experience called The Cauldron has popped up in London for 4 months.

Matthew Cortland who is a technologist and a former reading teacher along with David Duckworth who is a molecular mixologist and cocktail designer came up with the concept of combining science, technology and magic. They got their inspiration from movies such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Star Wars (not endorsed, affiliated or associated in anyway).

A drunk found dead – ImmerCity : Dead Quiet

ImmerCity returns this Summer with a new production Dead Quiet. Similar to previous shows it is a fully immersive murder mystery experience which centres around solving a mysterious murder. This time is about a murder which took place several decades ago at Kensington Central Library.  I had the pleasure of trying out a test run at their dress rehearsal with Bianca a blogger whom is a community member of Love Pop Ups London.

The librarian Miss Gwendolyn Radcliffe has been haunted by what happened over 50 years back ever since a murder happened and thinks it also has a link to the murder of her late husband whom died 10 years after.  So we was all called upon to help solve what happened.  Continue reading
