Book tickets to Wishmas in London More Christmas Shows in the West End Interview with Elgiva Field Can you describe the World of Wishmas?  Our wonderful world of Wishmas will be a playful place full of mystery and magic that is fuelled by all that is festive. Christmas is an all-round sensory experience which is why it lends itself to immersive wonder. What plans do you have to transform the amazing space under Waterloo station? We are filling the space with fun and festive experiential installations that bring the world of Wishmas to life. Audiences will flow from one space to the next, each room a playful contrast to the previous one, all inventively inspired by the Christmas canon. Discover where your wishes go and why robins are so important to Christmas! What will it look like and what experience do you plan for audiences to have when they arrive? It all begins with the festive spirit, wherever that burns bright, an Old Bauble Factory emerges, a signal that Wishmas is near. Hidden in its depths is a portal that leads to the enchanted realm of Wishmas. Looking after wishes is a complex operation and it starts with a Sorting Office. You arrive at this secret dispatch - where robins arrive with the world’s wishes, stored safely in their red bauble breasts - and the Wishkeeper attendant readies those baubles for safe transportation to Wishmas. You’ll board a specially chartered conveyance that will whisk you and the wishes on your journey to Wishmas. Who are the characters people will meet at Wishmas? Wishkeepers are the custodians of all the wishes that make their way to Wishmas. They are very similar to their elf cousins but they work 365 days a year handling your wishes with care. They dedicate their efforts to making sure “no wish is forgotten”. Audiences will meet some of the Wishkeeper team whirring away in their various departments to keep Christmas on track. And, never one to disappoint, there will be a Father Christmas encounter.  As a Londoner born and bred in South London, how do you feel about adding this very different seasonal attraction to the City? London is so cosmopolitan and rich and diverse in its communities and traditions. It is filled with world treasures and lots of secret gems to discover and marvel at. I hope Wishmas will feel like one of those moments of discovery that you get in the city where you open a door from one world and enter into another entirely new one.  Which age range do you think will enjoy this experience the most? The whole family. Everyone who believes it’s important to make a wish - there’s no age restriction to wishing. Christmas is a magical time. What’s your favourite thing about the season?  Just one thing?! For me it is about food, family, and taking time to enjoy all our little traditions and discovering new ones together that adds to a sense of occasion. And, of course, the possibility of snow. What is your Christmas Wish? That’s between me and the Wishkeepers.
Wishmas immersive Secret Cinema event to move to Central London at the Old Bauble Factory under Waterloo Station
New immersive Christmas experience Wishmas is moving to Central London. The spectacular Christmas event from the people behind Secret Cinmea is going to run in the vast space under Waterloo station - dubbed the Old Bauble Factory for Wishmas. The event begins on 14 November 2023 at the hidden destination, running for a limited 8 week season to 7 January 2024. Acclaimed director Elgiva Field, former Associate Director of the ground-breaking immersive theatre company Punchdrunk and Theatre-rites, is directing the new, fully immersive event. Wishmas: A Fantastical Christmas Adventure will feature a new, original story from the creative minds behind Secret Cinema. As you enter London’s hidden Old Bauble Factory under Waterloo station, visitors are promised a fantastical journey, including meeting the mysterious Wishkeepers, and a festive finale with Father Christmas himself. There will also be a Wishmas Market featuring delicious treats, drinks, and Christmas gifts. Elgiva Field said in a statement: “Supported by a world-class creative team, I can’t wait to bring a thrilling new Christmas experience into the heart of London at Waterloo, taking audiences on a magical journey into a spectacular snow-filled wonderland. Our hope is that Wishmas will become a new festive tradition for audiences of all ages!” The Wishmas event was first announced in June 2023, and the full creative team and further information will be announced at a later date.
