The Murdér Express

Taking place on a glamorous retro steam train, this new immersive adventure sounds more than a little Agatha Christie-inspired. An adventurous widow, a music hall star, a costermonger and an antique dealer are on their way to the French town of (ahem) 'Murdér' - but they could be in real danger. The audience will sit down to a menu composed by two MasterChef finalists as they follow a tale set in the golden age of rail travel.

A Canadian theatre company have created 'The Curious Voyage', a new immersive show that costs over a grand. Why's it so spendy? Well for starters, this show last for a whopping three days. Its 36 lucky (and minted) audience members begin the experience at the lakeside city of Barrie, Canada, where they'll follow a trail set by the show's creator Daniele Bartolini. Then, they'll hop on a plane to London, where they'll stay in a boutique hotel and experience more 'artistic encounters', culminating in an immersive production of a famous musical in a secret London location.

Much-loved retro kids' telly stalwarts 'Thunderbirds' have inspired this ambitious immersive sci-fi adventure, which will open new Elephant & Castle venue The Buzz. It brings the '60s series into the present day, with a plot that centres on a cyber attack on Brains' Lab by arch-villain The Hood. Tracy Island will come to life in glorious lifesize 3D (presumably with human actors instead of full-size jointed puppets) in an interactive show that'll welcome both adults and kids.
