The team behind boutique festival Winterwell will continue their innovative new series of events with a revolutionary new show in September. Wilfred Bagshaws Time Emporium will be an immersive, time travelling adventure which will truly take people on the journey of their lives
The Winterwell team has been inspired by the emerging trend for immersive theatre experiences, but frustrated that the role of the audience member has still largely been relegated to that of spectator. They are offering the first opportunities to not only lose yourself in a fantastic world (travelling back in time to key events in human history) but also to affect the outcome of the story.
Set over two weeks from 5th-15th September, The Emporium of Time will transport revelers to worlds they have only previously been able to read about in history books and novels. Whereas previously Wilfred’s Time Portal was hidden in the rear of his bric-a-brac shop, now he has positioned it elsewhere, in a secret location in (Central) East London. Its location is only revealed to ticket holders: those who are deemed trustworthy temporal adventurers.
Guests will arrive at The Chicago World Fair at the turn of the nineteenth century. A time when Modern America was born and attempted to move out of the industrial age, guests will be thrust into an age of technological wonder. They will encounter Edison, Tesla: geniuses of the modern age will parade their visions for the future – a world united by innovation, never again to be divided! Yet the Worlds Columbian Exposition is not just a festival of marvels: it is a pivotal moment in World History. Wilfred Bagshaw – gentleman scientist, inventor of time-travel – has discovered malicious forces are at work; forces our time-travellers must stop before causality is altered and humankind’s progress into modernity thrown askew.
This unique immersive and theatrical adventure will culminate in an atmospheric celebration of a bygone era.
So buckle up for the trip of a lifetime to Wilfred Bagshaws Time Emporium
