Tower of London

Nightwatchers, an after-hours immersive experience directed by digital theatre company Anagram, will return to the Tower of London this November.

The show sold out for both of its two dates last year, and the experience has returned for a number of dates this year.

Groups will be able to watch and get involved in the Nightwatchers production on the dates between 3rd and 5th, and 10th and 12th November.

There are five start times: 6.15pm, 6.35pm, 7pm, 7.20pm and 7.45pm. The experience, which lasts approximately one hour, has been commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces.

What is Nightwatchers?

Nightwatchers involves the audience pretending to be part of a state surveillance group called Operative 341. The story dips between contemporary London and the most dramatic years of the Elizabethan secret service.

The experience will see participants finding their way around various parts of the Tower of London, led by the use of messages and phone calls.

The experience is designed to represent an induction into the art of covert investigation, and will give participants an insight into the lives of code-breakers, law enforcers and radical religious extremists.

Anagram is a creative digital company based in Bristol, and creates work that brings together the physical and digital world.

The company won the Storyscapes prize in 2015 for best interactive work for an immersive installation called Door in Dark. This experience involved audiences being blindfolded and led by various story narrators around different environments such as a field and a forest.
