Alice returns to The Vaults

Published 9 December 2016

Les Enfants Terribles and ebp in association with Creature of London are delighted to announce the smash hit Alice’s Adventures Underground and the children’s show Adventures In Wonderland will both return to The Vaults in 2017. 

Following sell out performances of this unmissable show last summer which had over 100,000 visitors, culminating in a nomination for the 2016 Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family show; Alice’s Adventures Underground – originally conceived as a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel of the same name – will play a limited season from 15 April 2017 – 23 September 2017, with press night on Tuesday 25 April 2017.

For the 2017 season, there will be a limited number of tickets for under 26s at £25 each. The tickets are for the first performance on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the run. Standard ticket prices range from £39.00 to £71.50 (£31.50 – £54.00 during previews).

Adventures In Wonderland, the critically acclaimed, multi-sensory experience created and directed specifically for children aged 5 to 10 from Les Enfant Terribles award-winning children’s theatre company Les Petits, is also back and will play a limited season from 13 May 2017 – 3 September 2017, with press morning on Saturday 20 May 2017.

With even more twists and turns for 2017, Alice’s Adventures Underground invites you deep into The Vaults, hidden beneath Waterloo station, to lose yourself in a land far removed from our own.  Tumble down the rabbit hole falling fast into Wonderland and experience immersion like never before in this interactive, puppetry-packed, fusion of storytelling, music, circus and spectacle…but this isn’t Alice’s adventure, it’s yours…

Make a series of choices; Eat or drink? Grow or shrink? And find yourself at the centre of the story as you wander through Wonderland, piecing together the puzzle as to what has happened to Alice who is lost in the looking glass. Be careful as your choice leads you down a completely different path into Wonderland; you might grow to enormous proportions and become one of Wonderland’s elite rubbing shoulders with the highest of playing card suits; or you might shrink to be so small that even boarder control can’t detect you;  take tea at the biggest un-birthday party with the maddest of Hatters; let the Cheshire Cat take you hither or thither or you could even find yourself playing a key part in an underground resistance movement to rise against the fearsome Queen.

Pushing the boundaries of children’s theatre, Adventures In Wonderland allows families to explore Wonderland up close, in an immense multi-room set in the Vaults under Waterloo station. In this hour long show, children will play a part in controlling their own experience, as they search for Alice who is missing in Wonderland.  On entering Wonderland whether you ‘Eat me’ or ‘Drink Me’ will determine your unique path. Tumble with the Tweedle twins; follow the White Rabbit and take Tea with the Hatter at the Maddest Tea Party of all!

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
