If you’re in Newport keep your wits about you and try to spot 8 QR codes which come with very interesting short stories about strange activity taking place in the city.
From Joanie down the road noticing a new hole in her wall, Marcy’s chips disappearing and mysterious packages turning up – It’s all VERY STRANGE!
So…what’s actually going on?
Following on from the massive success of WONDERLAND, the new experience, HOW TO DEFEAT MONSTERS (AND GET AWAY WITH IT) is a flossy and Boo and The Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre co-production, taking place this Easter.
The production is an interactive, immersive theatre experience. If you try to imagine an escape room mixed with a theatre show mixed with an adventure playground then you’ll get an idea of what this unique experience will be.
From 1 years old to 100 years old, this is suitable for people of all ages! It is a wild and wonderful family experience that will have you scrambling around spaces, rummaging through research and delving into a hidden world to become the best Monster Seeker you can be.
There are two types of experiences: Explore Sessions and Performance Sessions. Explore sessions allow you to explore the space at your own pace, supported by our Monster Seeking Hosts. In the Performance Sessions the space will be brought to life with live performers; you can meet the team of Monster Seekers, delve into a hidden world and become the best Monster Seeker you can be!
The experience will run from Saturday 1st to Saturday 15th April, with a variety of session times in The Riverfront Theatre’s basement space. All the details further down this page.
You need to make sure that S.C.R.A.M don’t find out about the mission… they are the Society for the Control and Removal of Awful Monsters….baddies, proper baddies. Are you up for the challenge?
Dotted around Newport City Centre are 8 QR codes, which if you scan, tell you about some of the peculiar encounters some locals have experienced.
If you want to make sure you don’t miss a minute of the madness, take a look at the trail map, which pinpoints where each QR code is located – HERE.
If you’re unable to make it into town or don’t have a smartphone to scan the QR codes, head to Flossy and Boo’s SoundCloud account for all the stories in English and Welsh HERE.
