After a sell-out success over the summer, The Immersive Ensemble are back, and they're more mysterious than ever. Following on from their hugely successful debut earlier this year, this unequivocally immersive event series promises to be one of London's most thrilling experiences yet, where every decision taken could mean a different outcome.

Immersive theatre is conquering its biggest setting yet with over nine million extras, as audience members become the lead role in the newest and most exclusive immersive show in London.

An engaging & more sociable alternative to a conventional theatre show, The Drop Off is a unique way to start off a night out in central London with friends, a fun team activity after work: not many shows include a drink at a great venue. If you're just visiting London, why not join in and see some of the sights along the way.

Any adult from home or abroad is welcome to join us*: come on your own and meet others who decided to accept the job, or book as a couple or group.

The Drop Off, taking inspiration from British stalwarts such as James Bond and Sherlock Holmes, gives ticket holders the starring role as they move through Central London pursuing leads, visiting iconic and authentic locations and interacting with highly experienced immersive theatre actors both face to face and through phone calls and messages. 

Audiences travel around the city by land, by rail, by river as well as enjoying a drink or two in fantastic surroundings, all of which is included in their ticket price. 

The mission takes audiences to exciting and luxurious settings in the city playing out a narrative that moves into unknown dangerous territory before embarking on a high octane escape provided by London’s #1 attraction - Thames Rockets.

With only 12 tickets available per show, you are the leading role and this is as immersive as you can get. 

The people you encounter may not be willing to tell you the absolute truth when you ask them. The questions you ask can mean the difference between a good lead and a dead end. Remember, sometimes questions are more important than answers.

Good luck.

London's most exclusive immersive theatre show
90 minute experience
All travel during the show

THIS WAS EPIC. Seriously great evening and worth every penny. Had so much fun, and totally committed to my character. Saw a lot of London, had some wine and a nice treat at the end. Actors are great and its so cleverly done. Make sure you are in flat shoes and are relatively fit Visited London on 2016-09-16

Great immersive experience with fantastic actors. You needed to be very fit to keep up with all the running as it was a very fast chase plus on a Saturday London is very busy so people tend to get in the way ! Very much enjoyed the drink with Ed and the boat ride. Highly recommended if you enjoy immersive experiences. I'm looking forward to the next one. Visited London on 2016-11-26

One of the best experiences, although the word doesn't do it justice, that I've had in London! You're in at the deep end from the off and it's go, go, go! A great rompingly good fun adventure!

Such a cool experience! Immersive theatre at it's best, you really are at the heart of the story. Discover your inner 007 (and make sure you wear comfy shoes!) Best night I've had in ages!

Amazing show. Amazing experience. If anyone is looking for a great night out that's different then this is it. I haven't laughed that much in my 8 years of London. James

Really exciting experience, even for someone that would normally be reluctant to get involved I found myself in the thick of it. Such a brilliant idea and the cast were excellent bouncing off what ever was thrown at them... I'm still filled with adrenaline. Really can't recommend it enough

Go and see/do this! If you have ever watched an action/thriller/suspense film and wanted to be in it then now is your chance. Brilliant! Great night out. Go before you miss out!

We are still buzzing, what a night! I bought it as a gift for my friends 40th and I couldn't have chosen better, he was in his element. Amazing experience.
