Tower of London Opens its Doors to Immersive Experience The Gunpowder Plot in May

-

For those looking for the latest immersive entertainment experiences then you can’t go too far wrong with a trip to the UK this summer. Alongside the likes of Legoland Windsor and its Magical Forest augmented reality (AR) tour, the Tower of London is set to launch a brand new immersive experience based on Guy Fawkes called The Gunpowder Plot.

The latest project from Layered Reality (Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience) in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces and Figment Productions (Current Rising), The Gunpowder Plot combines live actors with digital ones in a multi-sensory theatrical adventure.

Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter) will play the lead role of Guy Fawkes, digitally recreated thanks to Figment for guests to experience in virtual reality (VR). They’ll step back in time to 1605 to go undercover and play an active role in one of the most infamous stories from British history. Attendees will be able to explore a purpose-designed immersive theatre space inside Tower Vaults, a location that hasn’t been accessible to the public for 20 years.

“I’m very excited to be playing a character so famous (and infamous!) for being at the centre of the most famous conspiracy plot in UK history. Guy Fawkes is a fascinating character with a complex history and with passionate advocates and detractors then and now. To be able to bring the character to life through Virtual Reality, and to allow him to interact with audiences in a way that has never been done before, is thrilling,” said Felton in a statement.

“We cannot wait to share this groundbreaking production with an audience. Incredibly realistic sets you can step onto and run your hands across. Cutting edge VR that puts our audience in the heart of London in one of its most volatile moments,” adds Creative Director Hannah Price. “Layered levels of immersion so everything you see, feel, touch, and even smell takes you further into the story. Add live actors and a brilliant script and our audience will have an experience like no other.”

Tickets are on sale now for The Gunpowder Plot which opens on 20th May 2022 in Tower Vaults at the Tower of London. Prices start from £40 GBP per person, rising up to £110 for VIP tickets. Groups of 6+ can save £5 per ticket using discount code GROUPS85W at checkout.
