This was a Christmas present from my wife and she did me proud. I've always loved the story, this just takes it up a notch as you become part of the adventure. The actors do a superb job, setting the scene but it's when you don the VR goggles that it really opens up and you are taken to the heart of the invasion and aftermath, if you suffer with any form of motion sickness then be warned, imagine sitting in the front seat of a roller coaster ride. There is a break halfway through at the Red Weed bar for some liquid refreshment and, of course, the loo before we go again. It all ends in the main bar but not before the obligatory photographs. My wife booked the 'meal deal' with the ticket we chose pizzas with a bowl of chips, piping hot and delicious, drinks are payable by card only. The whole thing is about 2 hours including the interval.So summing it up, whether you're familiar with the story or not this is a very enjoyable experience

I have been a fan of the music album since it came out over 40 years ago, and went to the live show a couple of years ago. This was a really enjoyable experience, I think it might help if you have ever heard the album or seen the show,but even if you have not would still be a great time. Live actors, VR and special effects all make for a great experience. Heartily recommend

A fantastic experience from start to finish. At first you walk in to what you think is a W of T W themed bar, which it is, but it’s a waiting room to an interplanetary experience. Once you’re inside you’re immersed in the story and the feeling of what happens next takes over. You work as a team and are encouraged to get to know each other throughout. The experience is enhanced by the actors and the special effects are dramatic and the performances realistic.

The highlight is the VR, which is initially strange and weird for novices such as I, but the sight of a Martian machine approaching on the horizon is breathtaking.

I’m trying not to give too much away here, but I’d encourage anyone and everyone to visit, whether a fan of H G or the music of Jeff Wayne , or not.

In a word..... remarkable!
