The Great Wizard’s Gathering


Tatton Park 2019

We first met the team at Tatton when they came on a recce to our Beside the Sea Adventure at Sewerby Hall & Gardens. They were looking for a new events partner to help them develop and engage their family audience both in stand-alone ticketed events and in value-add events at their beautiful and extensive site in Cheshire.


The Brief

Our brief was to create new Halloween offer for the site using the atmospheric Old Hall buildings. The site is contained by it’s own walls and sits away from the other main attractions at Tatton Park – making it perfect for an immersive experience for families.


What We Did

We designed a 90 min bespoke adventure – the Great Wizard’s Gathering – in which audiences were immersed in the world of the Tatton Park wizards. Drawn from the medieval history of the site and it’s extensive deer-filled parkland we created a dilemma – could audiences help save Tatton from an ancient dragon threat from the skies, and included interactive performance and two distinct workshop experiences – broomstick flying and potion-making.


The Result

The event was a sell-out – performing to 300 people a day for six days over the October half term and provided an exciting new offer for Tatton Park audiences – re-invigorating their Halloween delivery and creating a new model for delivery in future years.

“I have to say we have had some fantastic feedback so far and I was over the moon when we sold out of the tickets by Thursday morning. We had to turn quite a few people away for Halloween itself – but a good problem to have!”
