Nuclear War / Buried / Graceland

On Tuesday I ventured down to the Old Red Lion Theatre to see the three-play production Nuclear War / Buried / Graceland. Despite being a very small theatre, I really like the Old Red Lion. Their upstairs theatre room is quite intimate as the wooden benches are very close to the stage area. I’ve seen…

The Adventure Is Real

On Thursday night I was invited to try out the new immersive game by The Adventure Is Real, a combination of roleplaying games, boardgames, and immersive theatre. It was a whirlwind of an adventure to get through, and we had a whole lot of fun with it. Thanks for the invite, Love Popups London. When…

Jekyll / Hyde

Last night I was invited to try out Fire Hazard Games‘ newest street game, Jekyll/Hyde, currently hosted at the Vault Festival. The immersive game is set up for teams of one to three players and works through a website that provides the teams with clues and riddles to solve. Jekyll/Hyde runs for approximately two and…

Crooks 1926

Last week I was invited to come along to Colab Theatre’s newest production, Crooks 1926. This immersive theatre project takes us back to 1926 to be thrown into the seedy underworld of London’s crime gangs and their territorial rivalries. Crooks 1926 is staged at the Colab Pub, a short walk from both Borough and Elephant…

Secret Cinema – Stranger Things

I have been to a few Secret Cinema events before, so when I heard they were doing a Stranger Things run, I simply had to get a small gang together and head to Starcour Mall to celebrate the 80s in style! Lots of excitement in the run up to the show mean we had gathered…

Gingerline TV Dinners

On Thursday night, the lovely Joanne from Love PopUps London invited me along to experience Gingerline’s TV Dinners, a brand new immersive dining concept. TV Dinners is set up like a cheesy 90s game show in which contestants fight for extra food and the glory of winning. I had no idea what to expect, really….

Crisis, what crisis?

Last Friday, I got to check out the new Parabolic Theatre production of Crisis, What Crisis?, taking place at the Colab Factory, which has by now become a somewhat familiar venue. This interesting immersive experience lets you try your hand at running the government, of sorts. Set in 1979, the Labour Government has a working…

Silence is advertised with: This Halloween, investigate the mystery of the Southwark Murder. Join Rev. Stanley Park as you unravel the secrets of a hideous murder in the vain hope of…

Aladdin – Feast Of Wonders

Early this week I headed down to my favourite venue in London, The Vaults, with a few friens to experience the second of th two immersive dining shows currently running there. Aladdin And The Feast Of Wonders is another show created by Darling and Edge, whose previous adult dinner panto Beauty And The Feast I…

The Bed

I recently headed back to the Little Angel Theatre with one of my charges, the two year old, to see The Bed, toddler version, this time at the studios, with I prefer to the actual theatre venue. This venue has some play areas available for children before the show, and the audience is only lead…

Red Palace

On Sunday evening I returned to one of my favourite venues, The Vaults, to take part in Shotgun Carousel‘s newest production, the Red Palace. I’ve visited a few of their previous productions and loved every single one, so really looked forward to getting to experience this one as well. The menu was created and executed…

Variant 31

On Saturday evening I headed up to central London to give the newly opened Variant 31 a whirl. They’ve had a lot of technical issues and opening date delays, and reviews of the preview dates were extremely mixed, so I was looking forward to finding out for myself what this new London attraction is all…
