Jeff Wayne's New Adventure

Fans say "If you love the music... you'll love this"

Imagine experiencing a Martian invasion all set to Jeff Wayne's iconic Musical Version of The War of The Worlds.

Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience is a completely unique multi-award winning event where live actors, virtual reality and sensational 5D effects place you inside the action.

Your 1hr 50min adventure takes you back to 1898 to experience 24 extraordinary scenes: from the sighting of the first cylinder to the arrival of 300 foot Martian Fighting Machines and the evacuation of London. You'll visit the Royal Observatory on Horsell Common, sneak into George Herbert's deserted house, and even escape London by boat.


"If you love the music... you'll love this. Feel the tension, live the adventure, see the Martians. Well worth the price. Do it, you'll love it" - Dave B, Plymouth

  1. What was your creative process in scoring and arranging for the Immersive Experience?

  1. What's your favourite moment from The Immersive Experience?

"It built up from good to unbelievably good. The event was faithful to Jeff Wayne's version and to the original H.G. Wells book. The music is still going through my head weeks later. Well worth the trip."

— Stewart T

"This is a great adventure, from the moment you enter the building you're immersed into the world of H.G. Wells and Jeff Wayne. The iconic music that you would have heard for years in the settings of the common, the church and more whisk you away for an amazing 2 hour experience. Spot on special effects, sets, light and sound as well as the cast help make this a delight."

Jeff Wayne 'always wondered what it would be like to step back in time'

Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds has had an extraordinary life since its release in 1978, including records, arena tours and a West End production. Working in partnership with Layered Reality, the award-winning double album has now been adapted into a completely immersive experience. Read on to hear what Jeff has to say about its creation:

"Working with Layered Reality to turn my Musical Version into an Immersive Experience has creatively been one of the most unique and enjoyable collaborations within my career.

The challenge of starting with my original score and script, then adding new musical content, remixes and mash ups plus new storylines all coming together with two very passionate teams - those of Layered Reality and my own studio team and remain friends and proud of the end result, has been very special indeed.

I've always wondered what it would be like to step back in time to the world of H.G. Wells and his dark Victorian tale and survive the Martians. Well, now I know!"
