A journey suitable for all ages of approximately 70 minutes with seating provided during the longer scenes.

Will you agree with Phileas Fogg’s valet Passepartout?

‘I see that it is by no means useless to travel, if a man wants to see something new’

Discover how this new production combines Verne’s rich dialogue in traditional theatre style but where you will journey, in promenade, as the action is played out, through breathtakingly realistic sets, brought to you by the team who have worked on Star Wars, James Bond and Harry Potter.

For the first time on stage, discover how Phileas Fogg’s journey inspired a real-life American female newspaper reporter, only a few years later, to follow in his exact footsteps and to write her own book!

‘Rash as Americans are, when they are prudent there is good reason for it’

Learn the truth of the original and thrilling story from nearly 150 years ago and of how the audacious plan came about to circumvent the globe in less than three months.

Who was Phileas Fogg?

Genius? Mathematician? Eccentric? Criminal?

….or in his own words,

‘a man of heart?

…sometimes, when I have the time’

As the audience is limited to twenty, you may be sure of a uniquely close-up and immersive experience.

‘A true Englishman doesn’t joke when he is talking about so serious a thing as a wager’
