Welcome to The Institute.  
It is all perfectly safe. Trust us.

Anyone with an imaginative mind will enjoy the exciting journey of The Day I Fell Into A Book, an immersive storytelling adventure that explores the amazing places we go in our imaginations when we read. Follow the lab technician to The Institute and journey through the centuries-old stories complemented by three-dimensional sound recordings, intricate lighting and projection. The audience is taken into a lost world of classic myths and legends, travelling from underwater to outer space. Bit by bit, the fiction becomes reality as the stories seep into the room and come alive all around the audience. The spectacular sound and theatre experience explore the magic of reading for people of all ages.
