The UK’s longest running immersive production, The Great Gatsby, has moved to a new West End location.
When Jay Gatsby invites you to one of his infamous parties, it’s not an invite you want to turn down…
Be transported to the Roaring ’20s, an era of bootleg liquor, jazz and hedonism. You’ll be treated to an incredible, fine dining experience, designed by Immersive LDN‘s catering partner Flavourology, as well as a heart-racing adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic tale. The menu will reference the literary classic, using ingredients that were popular in the twenties, and dishes inspired by characters from the story.
Your edible adventure will begin with a buttermilk fried chicken amuse-bouche, with Champagne hollandaise and caviar, followed by bourbon-cured salmon with celeriac puree and remoulade, and spotted dick served under a white chocolate dome with custard parfait and a salted caramel sauce.
The production was first conceived back in 2015, in a community pub in an abandoned building in York. It ran in York and Sheffield until travelling down to London as part of VAULT Festival in 2017, where it sold out before the show even began. Since then, it’s been to Wales, Halifax and Castle Howard in North Yorkshire, all while simultaneously playing at Gatsby’s Drugstore in south London. In 2018 it became the UK’s longest running immersive production, and it’s still going strong.
Now in a brand new location at Gatsby’s Mansion in Mayfair, the show will have you immersed in one of the greatest stories of the 20th Century. After dinner, there’ll be plenty of time for cocktails, dancing, and seriously scandalous behaviour. It’s worth noting that you’re not required to dine, tickets are available for the party alone.
