Inside Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds experience

The Immersive Experience is coming to London.

From the creative minds behind the acclaimed SOMNAI, Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is set to open in London in May 2019.

The unique experience takes fans inside the world of the iconic HG Wells tale, set during an alien invasion in Victorian Britain.

Transporting visitors back to 1898, the creative process behind Jeff Wayne’s The War Of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is now well underway. In the video above, both creator and composer Jeff Wayne and CEO of experience organisers DotDotDot, Andrew McGuiness, discuss what’s in store come May.

The experience promises to merge immersive theatre, virtual reality, augmented reality, holograms and state of the art technology to bring the Martian invasion to life. All will take place at London’s huge 20,000 square foot space at Leadenhall Street near Aldgate station in London.

Groups of 12 will throw themselves into the immersive experience, lasting for 110 minutes and including a 20 minute interval in the Red Weed Bar.

The experience is currently booking from 16 May, for previews running until opening night on Friday 31 May 2019. Thereafter Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience will run until the end of August 2019.

Tickets for Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience are available now through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
