The Gunpowder Plot

The Gunpowder Plot

‘Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot.’  

Experience The Gunpowder Plot immersive this autumn for an experience that will never be forgot.  It’s one that is not to be missed.

If you’re looking for a slice of history as bonfire night approaches, you can do no better than to visit London’s biggest new attraction – currently running at Tower Vaults at the Tower of London, created by multi-award winning Layered Reality and Historic Royal Palaces.

This multi-sensory adventure opened earlier this year to rave reviews and is written by Olivier nominee Danny Robins with Creative Direction, story and experiences by stage director and multi-BAFTA award-nominated games performance director Hannah Price.

1605. The fuse of rebellion is lit. The peace of the nation balances on a knife edge.  Who will you trust?

The Gunpowder Plot mixes both live actors and digital stars in a multi-sensory theatrical adventure; leading Virtual Reality experts Figment Productions provide the magic that allows the actor’s images and movements to be motion captured and rendered “live” in the virtual world. Audiences can interact with Guy Fawkes, played by Harry Potter’s Tom Felton, inside Virtual Reality, as they infiltrate the plotter’s inner circle and learn of the conspiracy against the Houses of Parliament.

The Gunpowder Plot brings digital technology and a cavalcade of multi-sensory special effects which combine to allow audiences to step back in time to 1605. Audiences don’t just witness the action, they play an ever-active role in one of the greatest stories in British history. The guests’ mission: go undercover, infiltrate the plotters and become part of history’s most daring conspiracy. Intricate, large-scale walk-around locations and first-class actors performing live are integrated with ambitious technology, including virtual reality,projection mapping, ambisonics and multi-sensory SFX. The final layer, intended to fully immerse audiences is physical sensations; temperature, scent, taste, touch and sound.
