Programme announced for theatre extravaganza event this autumn
The City of London’s free immersive theatre adventure will feature over 30 independent theatre companies and 200 performers bringing London’s stories to life in this unique one-day event.
St Paul’s Cathedral Churchyard, the historic Guildhall Yard, and the London Wall High Walks will host street festivals, featuring giant puppets, circus performers, contemporary dancers, jugglers, storytellers, and interactive theatre. And in a dramatic end to the event at sunset, there will be three ‘fire finales’ at each festival, with breathtaking performances, flaming beacons, and a thrilling fire garden
Storytellers, poets and puppeteers will share the lesser-known stories of the City, from ancient tales of Roman Londinium to shopkeepers and Suffragettes. Doors to The Maze of Adventures will appear across the City, opening up multiple adventures guided via smartphone, each ending with a secret immersive performance in a range of exciting venues, from hidden gardens to listed buildings.
Audiences are invited to join The Hunt to crack the riddles and rhymes of the City of London and find the prize of a golden key with Square Mile cafes, pubs, bars, and restaurants hosting after party activity into the evening.
