The Time Travellers’ Ball


A new immersive theatrical experience opens at THE BUZZ London’s Newest Venue


London’s first ever purpose-built immersive theatre venue, The Buzz, is delighted to announce its opening production The Time Travellers’ Ball, from Wednesday 28 November.

The Time Travellers’ Ball is an evening of dance, decadence and drama through the decades – a time hopping love story to London, and the must-do night out for the festive season.

Audiences are invited to travel through the decades, starting as a flapper in the roaring 1920s, onto the fabulous 1950s as a jive queen and further on to the disco of the groovy 1970s, all through the story of young lovers Edward and Norma (assistants to one Charlie Chaplin). This ninety-minute immersive experience invites audiences to be part of the party and learn the dances of the decades as cocktails flow and the love story flourishes. All are encouraged to dress glamorously in a decade of your choice.

Co-producer, Emma Brünjes said: “We’re thrilled to welcome you all to The Time Travellers’ Ball, a show we’ve created specifically to open our new venue, The Buzz. Be prepared to laugh, cry and, of course, dance! We can’t wait to see you in your finery, to sup a cocktail or three and – importantly – to escape through time.”

Created and Produced by Limelight Productions and ebp. The Buzz is based at the vibrant Mercato Metropolitano, which offers an array of artisanal cuisines for you to enjoy before or after the show. Cocktails can also be purchased at The Buzz.

The Buzz will be the UK’s first purpose-built immersive theatre space. Set to launch this Christmas at Mercato Metropolitano, the iconic South London market grounds, The Buzz has been designed to inspire creativity and innovation. This fully flexible performing arts space will provide leading theatre creatives space to grow ideas on a blank canvas. The vision is to reduce limitations on creativity which will facilitate production companies and great ideas.

The Buzz will also be a community hub for theatre-makers, local students, and the community alike. The Young Buzz offers a collection of immersive and interactive theatre-based programmes, bespoke training and learning opportunities for people aged 14 to 30.
