Layered Reality Experiences

Layered Reality™ is the creator and producer of The Gunpowder Plot. It is their third immersive experience, following SOMNAI and Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience.

In partnership with Historic Royal Palaces, The Gunpowder Plot brings the world of the 1605 plotters to life and fully immerses the audience at the heart of the action.

What are the layers in Layered Reality™?

The Gunpowder Plot uses the innovative Layered Reality™ technique, which combines the latest digital tech (Virtual Reality, projection mapping and volumetric holograms) together with live theatre (talented character actors, million-dollar sets and Hollywood-style special effects) plus real physical sensations (touch, temperature, smell, sound and music, physical movement, and taste) to create unique immersive experiences that are truly memorable.

Watch the video below to hear Andrew McGuinness, CEO & Founder of Layered Reality™, describe how a Layered Reality™ experience works.

SOMNAI was Layered Reality™’s proof of concept. Launched in 2018, SOMNAI explored lucid dreaming and the subconscious mind, taking the customer on a trippy journey where they experienced flying and a fantasy world.

Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience

Created in partnership with composer Jeff Wayne, Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience places the audience inside the Martian invasion of 1898.

Led by live actors, audiences climb, slide and weave their way through 24 movie quality sets, encountering three Virtual Reality sequences along the way.

Jeff Wayne's award winning double album provides the soundtrack to the entire experience.
