Important event Information - please read before booking

The event is taking place in a Grade I listed former parish church. Although the entrance into the building (and the immersive experience) is fully wheelchair accessible, the upper level of the church is accessed by stairs only. The upper level holds a VR experience (which will not be covered by your ticket with us) and a gift shop. The Toolbox Drama trip will not venture upstairs, however it is worth being mindful that this area will not be accessible for everyone. 

The Immersive Space uses 360° digital projection, this will include moving images and moments of darkness. Whilst there is no flashing lights, some participants may find the immersive nature of the event overwhelming. We encourage all participants and their support to watch this video before booking to ensure the experience is right for them.
