About Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience

The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is a new, completely unique event where live actors, virtual reality, and sensational 5D effects place you INSIDE the action.

You'll visit the Royal Observatory, sneak into a deserted house, escape London by boat and even fly to Mars - all with Jeff Wayne's multi award-winning musical version of The War of The Worlds as your soundtrack!

You'll meet a colourful cast of 17 characters including holograms and VR of West End star Carrie Hope Fletcher (Heathers, Les Miserables, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Tom Brittney (Granchester, Make Me Famous) and Anna-Marie Wayne (The War of The World's Live) plus 12 live actors.
