Unstuck Presents invites you to step into the story and experience a club night like no other! Blurring the lines between clubbing and theatre, this will be a truly unique, otherworldly experience.

Featuring ear-melting DJ line ups, hidden walkways with face-to-face interactions from a cast of actors and original scripts and set design for each show.

Tonight... Will you get away with the vault’s treasures and celebrate to a world-beating lineup of DJs? Or will you face a lengthy jail term with Her Majesty's Prison Service? At this party Your choices decide your fate.

Expect awesome tunes from DJ Hype and Slamboree Soundsystem, with six plus hours of Bass, DnB, Jungle, Breakbeat and Electro Swing. Also, within the venue's five hidden chambers, you shall find weird and wonderful characters, a thumping soundtrack, and cast of eight actors and puzzle-like scenarios for you to conquer - think London Dungeons meets surreal nightclub!

The experience also includes a briefing with London’s most notorious Gang Boss, a bank vault raid - and if you’re unlucky (or outsmarted), a run in with the justice system.

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.

Just south of the River Thames lies Colab House 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 regulars trust 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.

Nestled away near London Bridge Station, the club is just a stones throw away 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 ‘unbreakable’ 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…

Q: As pretty much all of us know, in March 2016 seven men were sentenced at the Old Bailey for breaking into a Hatton Garden security deposit vault. The Hatton Garden raiders boasted that the heist was the “biggest robbery in the f*cking world”. They were wrong. In legal terms, as no violence or guns were used, the £14m theft was formally classed as a burglary, not a robbery. The question is what were the seven men's combined age?
A: .1) 229 years .2) 398 years .3) 443 years .4) 566 years
