London's newest immersive multimedia, multi-sensory, sci-fi experience is about to land

inspired by 'The Crystal Egg'.

 

 Fusing multiple art forms including light, sound, video, and performance,  to bring to life the work of seminal writer H. G. Wells, author of 'The War of the Worlds' and 'The Time Machine' like never before. 

 

Step back and immerse yourself in 19th Century London, and the slums of Seven Dials, to discover an object of immense power amongst the dusty relics of Cave's curio shop and come face to face with creatures of another world.

 

What would you do if you knew you were being watched? Watched by someone you were not even aware was there?

 

Opening 06 - 13 January 2018
