Now you can tread in the footsteps of the infamous Jack The Ripper down the dark, narrow, gas-lit alleyways on our JACK THE RIPPER TOUR.

Finally, no Halloween would be complete without going to see the the spellbinding and spectacular hit musical, WICKED at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. WICKED is the untold story of the legendary witches from L. Frank Baum's classic, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch, we only ever heard one side of the story. Gregory Maguire's 1995 novel, Wicked: The Life & Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, created "one of the great heroines of fantasy literature" - Los Angeles Times, explaining how a misunderstood, green girl named Elphaba became "wicked" but her unlikely friend, Glinda, became "good".

“Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times) is now the record-breaking sensation of London’s theatreland…

Based on Gregory Maguire’s “outstanding novel” (The Independent), the spellbinding WICKED transports audiences to a spectacular fantasy world of wizards and witches to tell the incredible untold story of an extraordinary friendship between two girls: the blond and popular Glinda and the misunderstood green girl, Elphaba, whose destiny is to become the infamous Wicked Witch of the West.

Experience this unforgettable, award-winning musical and discover that you’ve not been told the whole story about the land of Oz...
