House of Horror at Essex from Friday 28 September – Wednesday 31 October 2018

A new and groundbreaking 4D immersive experience featuring a full cast of highly-trained actors ready to twist and turn you through film-grade sets designed by the best, to do their worst. 😱

Decaying in the depths of Brentwood, a blood-soaked path draws you towards a vast, abandoned house. Inside, spirits are awoken and nightmares are realised as you embark on your battle through 12 rooms of sheer torture. These are your darkest fears so prepare to take centre stage in scenes reminiscent of Hollywood’s most terrifying films where you become the victim… are you brave enough to step inside?

Fight your way through each zone of terror as the house throws up a chilling array of physical and psychological challenges. You’ll find yourself exorcising a demon as you witness a possessed girl’s head twist 360 degrees and if you take a wrong turn in the ‘Macabre Maze’, you’ll meet a sinister fate.

With areas including Sci-Fi-Die, Krow Killers, and Medical Madness, you’ll join forces with up to 10 friends to see who can make it out alive! Should you survive the ordeal, you will have the choice to enter the mysterious Room 13, a room so intense, visitors are required to sign a waiver before entering because of the torture endured inside.

Visitors also have the option of receiving a video of the whole experience filmed on a GoPro, have photos taken in a specially themed booth complete with gory props as well as visit the weird and wonderful gift shop. Guests can also revel in the fright of others by spectating live on Fright Vision, while plenty of street food and refreshments will be available to help them level their nerves and bring adrenaline levels back down to normal.

This is the most complete and crazy, unforgettable and unique spooktacular experience in the country… dare you enter the House of Horror?

A theatrical animation experience, involving an animated cat and mouse and a band of dogs. Expect: live music, theatrical devices, crazy cartoons, high octane action, fun and frolics, extreme violence, moments of edification, sadomasochism, the face machine, skeletons, dogs, dancing, and more! 🐱🐭

Featuring the the animations of Paul Bill Barritt (1927) with live music by Officer Pup, courtesy of composer and Edinburgh Fringe winner, Laurence Owen and band plus, we introduce Miss Lesley Ewen as The Law.

The cultural history of anthropomorphised animals is long and deep, as long and deep as the river of imagination itself. We see ourselves reflected back at ourselves within those furry beings. Cat and Mouse is one such development.

Taking its germ from the great peddler of anthropomorphised cat and mouse chaos Mr. George Herriman, it proceeds in a zigzag line through the gamut of human idiocy from art to war, from technology to industry, from civilisation to love all via the shenanigans of various humanimals mostly of the rodent/feline variety with some notably canine overseers holding court over the proceedings.

Sticking within the traditions of artistic purveyance there will be visuals in the form of animations, sets and costume, there will be live music and there will be storytelling. A theatrical animation experience unlike anything seen before, alike to everything seen once upon a time, long ago…

It is 2015. London has fallen. The deadly Z virus is transforming the global population into a rabid horde of the infected. With societal structure collapsing, humanity is faced with a desperate battle for survival.

An immersive live experience that puts you squarely into the dark heart of a zombie massacre. With chaos unfolding around you, prepare to be thrust into your very own action movie where your choices directly influence the show’s narrative and outcome. Forget sitting down; this is multimedia storytelling on steroids, with no fourth wall and no interval. Every choice is life or death and survival is in your hands.

The world of The Generation of Z: Apocalypse unfolds within a purpose-built, labyrinthian venue in Dept W on Mile End Road in Whitechapel. The former Wickhams department store is an iconic building in the heart of East London, with its basement spanning over 25,000 square feet. It is here that audiences must attempt to navigate their way through our apocalyptic wasteland.

WARNING:
This is a promenade performance containing moments of extreme shock and tension, realistic depictions of gore and violence, and loud noises. Not suitable for those under 16 years old.
