The Heist sees club-goers execute a bank robbery (to an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack) and invites you to meet London's most notorious gang boss!

The Heist immersive party is an exciting addition to the world of immersive events and club nights.

Immersive theatre's popularity is at an all-time high. Events like Secret Cinema’s Casino Royale sold a record number of tickets this year grossing over $10 million. Leading club brands like Elrow have adopted some immersive devices like in crowd actors and costumed dancers to great effect and sold out their 15,000 capacity London Festival this year.

By taking storytelling devices like walkthroughs, original scripts and one-on-one character interactions found at immersive shows, The Heist introduces story-driven adventure to the club environment. Following its sold-out debut, The Heist returns to London on Dec 6th with DJ Hype as headliner. Check out The Heist promo video to get you pumped!

The Experience:

Upon your arrival at the venue, you are encouraged to explore, relax and dance. When the time is right, you will be approached by a costumed character. This character will act as your guide, introducing you and your friends to a small crew of other guests with whom you will start your adventure with.

The theatrical climax of the night takes place as your Guide leads you into a hidden series of rooms within the venue. Each room contains characters (or creatures!) who you’ll have to interact, bargain and party with as you become a part of the story. A soundtrack operated by a concealed DJ will accompany the experience in some rooms so you can fist pump and boogie your way throughout the mission.

The heady blend of suspense and adrenalin gives way to euphoria as you and friends (old and new) exit the walk-through experience. The time has come to toast the nights successes and continue the party into the early hours of the morning.

Nestled beside Finsbury Park lies a low profile nightclub known by London’s underworld as a meeting hub for outlaws and misfits. The venue’s owner referred to as the King of Thieves - values discretion above all else. The King promises a safe haven for the unruly, a place where they can scheme without outside interference.

Newcomers courageous enough to enter have to earn the trust of regulars by taking part in a high-stakes plot; If successful they can expect a night of unbridled joys and excess. But be warned, failure may result in an encounter with the Metropolitan Police force or far worse - the wrath of the venue’s owner. For those in the know, the club is within striking distance from the capital’s banking district, and the legendary Fitzroy’s Private Bank. Established in 1920, Fitzroy’s acts as a depository for London’s super-rich.

Rumour has it that Fitzroy’s may also be guarding a priceless treasure, the lost Florentine Diamond. During the grand opening, the bank’s founder Mr Fitzroy stated that his vault was ‘impenetrable’ and ‘any fools who even dream of stealing from Fitzroy’s must be either drunk, mad, or both’. Such a boastful comment was bound to pique the interest of an unsavoury crowd. After all, the characters at King of Thieves club love a challenge as much as they do a party…
