How to get last minute tickets to see Tom Felton in The Gunpowder Plot
A new immersive theatre experience starring Tom Felton as Guy Fawkes is set to entertain UK audiences this summer – here's how to get tickets.
Harry Potter star Tom Felton is taking on the role of Guy Fawkes in a new immersive theatre experience, The Gunpowder Plot. Our guide tells you everything you need to know, plus the latest on how to get last-minute tickets!
34-year-old Felton rocketed to stardom for his part in the Harry Potter franchise where he played Potter's villainous school rival, Draco Malfoy. Now, he's ready to take on an iconic role from history — digitally becoming Guy Fawkes and retelling the story of his attempt to blow up King James I and the Houses of Parliament in 1605.
The show contains a compelling mix of live-action performances and digital actors, which are rendered using a mix of virtual reality, CGI and special effects. Felton heads up a digital cast of over 50 stars.
Notably, it's an immersive theatre experience, rather than a traditional play. So there will also be chances for participants to interact with the characters and scenes.

Perfectly setting the scene, the show will take place in the newly built theatre space, the Tower Hill Vaults. Over the course of the 90-minute show participants will wear VR headsets, and take a boat down the Thames to the Houses of Parliament, before returning to Tower Hill Vaults and witnessing the gruesome ending of Fawkes's story.
