Good Omens-themed exhibition and escape room opens in Soho
A Good Omens-themed exhibition and escape room opens to the public this weekend (June 1-2) in London’s Soho.
Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, new fantasy series Good Omens arrives on Amazon Prime Video today (May 31). It stars David Tennant as a demon called Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale, two unlikely heroes who join forces to prevent an apocalypse on Earth.
The exhibition is housed in a pop-up bookshop on 19 Greek Street, A.Z. Fell and Co., in London’s Soho, designed to look like Aziraphale’s run down bookshop hideout.
Inside is an escape room experience, where fans have half an hour to solve an assortment of puzzles in the hope of finding of The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter (and grab a cup of Earl Grey and some biscuits on completion). Not only that, to amplify the stakes and start the experience off, they’ll take a terrifying trip to Hell…
The escape room experience is free but ticketed and can be completed in groups of 2-4.
Elsewhere at A.Z. Fell and Co., fans can explore a fantastic gallery of original artwork and on-set drawings from acclaimed portrait artist Lorna May Wadsworth.
There’s also interactive set replicas and props to explore, plus full costumes from each of the main characters in the show.
The exhibition and experience will be free of charge and open to the public on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, to celebrate the launch of the series release on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, May 31.
