The Golden Key is a spectacular free event transforming The City of London into a large-scale programme of immersive performance and participatory events on Saturday 15 October.
Inspired by the history and hidden tales of the Square Mile, audiences are guided through the City’s streets on an array of magical experiences by a host of characters conjured up from the past and future.
Event highlights include:
- Three Fire Fairs – colourful family-friendly festivals of performance in Guildhall, alongside the London Wall Highwalks and around St Paul’s Cathedral;
- The Maze of Adventures – twelve smartphone-led adventures leading to immersive experiences in some of the City’s best-kept secret locations;
- The Hunt – a secret quest to find the Heart of the City, and a treasure hunt, for real.
The Golden Key has been created by Coney & Friends: we have worked with a vast network of partners, old and new, to put together this exciting programme, bringing together over 30 companies and 200 individual artists.
The Golden Key is the first major event commissioned by the City of London Corporation under Destination City, a new flagship programme aiming to enhance the Square Mile’s leisure offer with fun, inclusive and innovative events appealing to existing and new audiences.
