What to expect at The Gunpowder Plot Immersive Experience

Explosive entertainment to ignite the imagination.

Interesting one this. The Gunpowder Plot Immersive Experience focuses on London’s most daring conspiracy. A failed attempt to assassinate King James I of England during the opening of parliament way back in November 1605. Organised by Robert Catesby, a devout English Catholic, the plan was to kill the Protestant King James and establish Catholic rule in England. Needless to say, it never worked.

This super-immersive thrilling experience takes part in a theatre space tucked into the Tower Vaults, at the UNESCO World Heritage Tower of London – isn’t that nifty.

The Layered Reality experience combines the latest digital tech (VR projection mapping and volumetric holograms) together with live theatre (live actors, movie-scale sets, and special effects) plus real physical sensations (touch, temperature, smell, sound and music, physical movement, and taste) to create a unique, truly unforgettable immersive experience.

Using a combination of live theatre and the latest digital technology you are transported into the heart of a story in which you are the protagonist. You’re thrown into the world the plotters inhabited, immersed in an unforgettable, fully 360 environment. You will experience the deception first hand but when you are surrounded by ‘traitors’, who will you trust?
