We welcome all to walk on the wild side of Victoriana, and witness at first hand the seedy underbelly of Clockwork Underworld – an immersive theatrical experience where the audience become characters in the production.
Explore the dark streets of London’s East End, see the less salubrious side of clockwork automata, step into The Den to see the finest Victoriana Burlesque, or just pop into the First Oasis the world’s first Clockwork friendly bar to witness a plethora of curiosities at first hand.
The night is pivotal part of the Clockwork Watch story, a 5-year multicultural steampunk narrative told through graphic novels, live events, immersive theatre, online and film. This will be our second annual live event, having showcased in 2012 at the Latitude Festival and at the Leyshon Brother Bonded Warehouse.
This will also be the launch event for Clockwork Watch: Breakaway, the second graphic novel in the series. Expect to interact with characters from the story, and don’t be shy to create a little story of your own.
