Event description

Description

Do you have what it takes to make history?

Set in the near future, events mirror those of the Peasants Revolt of 1381 led by revolutionary Wat Tyler, when people’s protest turned to violent revolt over taxes, austerity and unstable leadership.Experience what it’s like to be at the centre of a critical moment in this nation's past, live the build-up through digital storytelling then let the lines between history and reality blur as you storm the Tower and decide the fate of the nation.

The People’s Revolt is an immersive, interactive experience from ground-breaking theatre company differencEngine in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces.

“The gates to the Tower of London are locked; those inside must answer to us all. Their wealth is our austerity, our poverty and tax. But they are few and we are many. We brought this revolt to their door and I ask you now: Do you have what it takes to make history?”
