The Droves

An immersive theatre show designed by kids, for adults.

You’re invited into a secret community of children living deep beneath a derelict carpet factory.

For decades they’ve hidden from adults, growing strange in the darkness – but now they’re asking you in… Unsettling dilemmas, mushroom forests and at least one gorilla await you at the door.

Part immersive experience, part escape game, The Droves presented the imaginations of 6-11 year olds as they took over COLAB Factory in London Bridge for a unique theatrical event.
