Following the sell out production of The Narnia Experience in 2011, which attracted 17,000 visitors, CS Lewis fans will once again have the chance to experience the land behind the wardrobe for themselves.
From 11th to 23rd February, St George’s Hall on Liverpool’s Lime Street will again be the platform on which the fantasy land will be created, with 80 pine trees being imported, Mr Tumnus and Mrs Beaver’s homes being created, the Professor’s study being built, the White Witch’s throne room being constructed and the grand model of Aslan himself being displayed.
And because it’s not just this that the vibrant, exciting city of Liverpool has to offer, why not find cheap hotels and make a weekend of it?
What to Expect
Mirroring the same popular walk through format as last time, with just a few minor alterations to the set and script, the experience itself is a theatrical performance where visitors step into a wardrobe of fur coats and stumble upon a wintery forest. Taking on the role of either Lucy or Edmund, the audience will follow the classic tale from their character’s perspective, meeting the likes of Mr Tumnus, Mrs Beaver and The White Witch. Watch the trailer here.
When to Go
Open from 9:30am to 7pm daily between 11th and 23rd February, there are plenty of shows to choose from, however it should be noted that the first week is dedicated to school visits, with the general public being granted admission only in the late afternoon or early evening.
CS Lewis’ magical world of Narnia, which has enchanted generations through both the original books and in more recent years television series and films, will be brought to life in Liverpool by Crosby charity In Another Place.
In order to put on the event, a team of around 500 volunteers from community groups and churches have been gathered to make up the cast and crew, with lead characters performed by a team of actors on rotation.
A series of seven fantasy novels, set in a world of talking animals, The Chronicles of Narnia have sold more than 100 million copies in almost 50 languages since they were written between 1947 and 1954.
