The Main Event

Step inside history's most daring conspiracy.

This immersive, live action Gunpowder Plot experience has it all - conspiracy theories, live theatre and the latest digital technology transporting you into the heart of the story with you as the central character.

Find yourself transported back more than 400 years into the world of the infamous Gunpowder Plot with this fully immersive experience.

Trust no one as you delve undercover to unveil the enigmatic individuals behind history's most notorious anti-government rebellion. Featuring live actors and digital characters, with Tom Felton (known as Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter) portraying Guy Fawkes, you don't just observe history—you participate in it.

The danger and intrigue feels real as you attempt to escape the Tower of London, discover a secret safe house and make the daring journey along the Thames towards the Houses of Parliament in order to foil the plotters.

This unforgettable immersive experience themed around gunpowder, treason and plot lasts around an hour and 40 minutes, with a 20-minute break during which you'll be able to enjoy refreshments in the specially recreated Duck and Drake, accessible only to plotters.

Great Reviews

  • Impressive, immersive and entertaining

    We were already fans of the War of the Worlds experience, so we had high expectations when going to this... but it did not disappoint at all.

    Here's my 12 year-old's review: "it was exciting, amazing and awesome - thank you."

    The actors were excellent, weaving an interesting tale which we got to take part in. The sets and special-effects were high-quality, and the location and building really added to the day.

  • Amazing!

    Got this as a present for my partners birthday. Didn't really know what to expect but it looked fun so thought i'd give it a go. It was amazing! Wearing the VR headset and the live actors make you feel part of the action and like you've stepped back in time. Highly recommend if you're looking for something different as a gift.
