We have spent the past six months in research and development with Arts Council England, Bristol + Bath Creative R+D and Audience of the Future on starting a new business in the experiential sector and immersive horror. We will be sharing our learnings, insights and tools we’ve discovered along the way and how they will be informing our first experience. So hold onto the safety bar and keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times as we delve into immersive psychological horror experiences.
