From November 7 you will be able to evade the cops for fun in London. Steady on! It's only part of a new immersive heist game, based on the hit Netflix show 'Money Heist'. You might know the non-English language series by its Spanish name 'La Casa de Papel'. It was all about crims and banks and robberies and Salvador Dali masks. Big hit. In the series, a shadowy criminal mastermind, known as 'The Professor,' plans history's biggest ever robbery, with help from a group of thieves. Long story short: they take hostages and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain. Well, Netflix has finally revealed the location for the immersive theatre experience coming to London next month. The address is 79-85 Old Brompton Road. You might also know that address by a different name: Christie’s Auction House. Obviously, that means it’s bang in the middle of London’s Arts District. Audience members will be helping plan robberies and evade security, all in the shadow of the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Using the television programme as a 'jumping-off point', the immersive experience in London will involve audience members being recruited into the notorious gang, to pull off a series of robberies on international targets. You'll be breaking into major landmarks, infiltrating vaults and earning a spot in the gang. And yes, all while wearing one of those fetching jumpsuits and a Salvador Dalí mask.

For more than 50 years Time Out has been all about showing you the best of the city. And very often the best of the city is something local. London's independent or iconic restaurants, pubs, theaters, gig venues, nightclubs, cinemas, art galleries and concert halls. The places where stuff happens.
Recent events have made it tougher than ever for London's local businesses to thrive and, in some cases, survive. Jaw-dropping rent and business licenses were already posing a challenge, before the pandemic came along and vanished months or years of potential revenue.
Time Out wants to help. That's why we've been running our Love Local campaign to support local food, drink, culture and entertainment in London. From the knife-forgers in Peckham, to chefs selecting their favourite fruit and veg shops. We're also asking interesting citizens to share with us their picks of the neighbourhoods they know and love and spotlighting the craftspeople that are turning out fantastic local products.
We're also proud to have played a role in getting the word out about various crowdfund campaigns that successfully saved a number of London venues. The Jazz Cafe, The Gun pub and Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, among them.
We'll go on highlighting independent shops and businesses, so do get in touch with info about your local makers and your crafty mates. Tell us about them at email@example.com and we’ll tell other Londoners.
Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with the ongoing campaign. As London emerges from an abject period, Time Out will continue to fight for the city's brilliant local businesses.
