London leads where others follow when it comes to new and exciting experiences, and this summer is no different.
Taking the immersive experience a stage further, those staying at the M by Montcalm London this year can enjoy several innovative experiences during their stay the likes of which haven’t been seen before – here is a collection of some of our favourites that are coming to the city in 2019.
Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds
16 May 2019 – 31 Aug 2019
Be transported back in time to Victorian England for two hours with this adaptation of H.G. Well’s famous War of the Worlds sci-fi novel bought to life by immersive theatre company, dotdotdot.
A venue with a difference, groups of up to twelve guests are welcomed to journey into the story with ten experience rooms, each of which plays an essential role for visitors experiencing the narrative using virtual reality technology.
From ducking flames thrown by invading aliens to becoming a central character in the production by wearing a V.R. headset, be prepared to feel deep vibrations, climb through windows and be plunged into total darkness at this terrifying yet incredible immersive experience.
Just a ten-minute Tube ride away from M by Montcalm London and Shoreditch tech city, make sure you dress ready for adventure as this production has it by the bucketful!
Secret Cinema 2019: Casino Royale
June – Sept 2019
Shaken not stirred? If you’re a bit of a Bond fan, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to get up close and personal to the suave cast of Casino Royale with one of London’s most loved immersive theatre groups.
With high stakes and high drama, this multi-layered performance is ideal for anyone wanting to stay near Shoreditch tech city with a passion for mystery and suspense.
As soon as you arrive at the venue (which can easily be reached by Tube from M by Montcalm London), you’ll be given special mission instructions and be encouraged to interact with the cast. This makes the experience one of the most realistic and immersive nights out London has ever seen.
Mamma Mia! The Party
29 Aug – 18 Nov 2019
Lovers of the films and Abba rejoice as the ultimate party rolls into town this summer! With rave reviews for this immersive production, guests are actively encouraged to join in the chorus lines and dance to their heart’s content at Mamma Mia! The Party.
Step inside an island paradise with real olive trees, fountains and a bronzed cast who are able to belt out Abba hits with the best of them. Far from a flimsy tribute night, the décor and cast really do invite you into the narrative, so make sure you check out our special offers Shoreditch hotels to be close to the action as you’re definitely going to want to purchase some platform heels for this event!
With the O2 Arena as the venue for Mamma Mia! The Party, take the Northern and Jubilee Tube lines and you’ll be ready to dance the night away in just over twenty minutes.
The Swell Mob, COLAB Factory
04 May 2019 – 25 Aug 2019
Fancy a night of debauchery with a crew of less-than-respectable Victorian characters? Then the Swell Mob immersive experience is for you! Drink, dance and gamble into the night in this 1830’s taproom setting which could be straight out of a Dickensian novel.
The lively cast interrupts the jovial setting with powerfully played out scenes that keep the storyline alive throughout the night and keep guests on their toes, so expect the unexpected if you’ll be booking tickets to join the Swell Mob this summer.
With immaculate attention to detail, a suspenseful storyline and supernatural undercurrents all thrown in for good measure, this is a highly entertaining experience for couples and groups staying at M by Montcalm London. Dust off those corsets and waistcoats and get ready to mingle with a few unsavoury characters from the Victorian underworld.
The Great Gatsby Party
Available until September 2019
If you fancy get dressed up to the nines and giving your Charleston skills a whirl, then you’ll need tickets to the biggest party in town!
One of the most engaging, immersive theatre experiences coming to the city this year, the narrative of the famous novel isn’t as linear as you’d expect, so the audience is encouraged to follow one central character as many scenes play out simultaneously.
The roaring twenties really come to life in this production which takes place in the vaults underneath Waterloo Station, so grab your glad rags and get ready to be taken into this vibrant and engaging immersive production.
If you need a little extra to spend on that all-important outfit, then take advantage of our special offers Shoreditch hotels, and you’ll be able to go all out for a night out you certainly won’t forget in a hurry!
Anyone staying at Shoreditch tech city simply has to pay a visit to Otherworld. An amazing fusion of the latest tech, zombies and mountain expeditions. The thing that makes Otherworld the ultimate immersive experience is that each visitor gets their own virtual reality pod and the opportunity to choose their own experience.
From fighting back against the undead, taking on menacing robots or following a digital mouse on a tiny adventure, Otherworld is ideal for visitors of any age staying at the M by Montcalm London and can offer a totally unique night out.
You can even undertake general office tasks in a virtual workplace if you feel like it, although some of the other adventures are far more exciting!
A great get together with friends, visitors to Otherworld can meet up after their pod experience in the bar to share their thoughts about the latest VIVE tech that you’ll be able to use during your visit, so it’s a must for anyone seeking an unusual night out or that person who just loves the latest tech!
