MUSIC AND SCORE
THE TIGER LILLIES- Anarchic Brechtian Blues for a quarter of a century!
The Tiger Lillies were formed in 1989 and a quarter of a century later they remain one of the most unique, provocative and genre-defying bands one could come across. Having received one Olivier award and a Grammy nomination, The Tiger Lillies never cease to find new ways to shock, enchant and amuse, with their imitable style and breath-taking live performances.

WHAT IS IT?
Goosebumps Alive and Goosebumps Kids are immersive, promenade theatre productions, that take you through the cavernous Vaults beneath Waterloo station. These productions are world premieres and exclusive to London, so you will never have a chance to see them again!
ARE THERE SEATS?
No. You will be moving around and discovering the story.
IS IT SCARY?
It wouldn’t be Goosebumps without a little bit of fear. The show is fun, but does involve some jumps and surprises, as well as moving through dark and strange spaces. There are two versions: Goosebumps Alive, and Goosebumps Kids for 5 – 11 year olds. These ages are our recommendation, but braving the show is at your own discretion
There will be moments of claustrophobia. And we do not recommend attending if you have a heart condition or are heavily pregnant. If any of this effects you, please make the Front of House staff aware on arrival who will be able to pre-negotiate the show to avoid extreme moments.
WHAT BOOKS ARE IN THE SHOW?
We are including little snippets from all of your favourite stories, but predominantly you can expect:
Say Cheese, And Die!
The Blob That Ate Everyone
The Haunted Mask
Stay Out Of The Basement
One Day In Horrorland
Night Of The Living Dummy
I'VE NEVER READ/SEEN GOOSEBUMPS - WILL I UNDERSTAND IT?
Absolutely. We are inspired by the books we loved as kids, our retelling of these stories is written for anyone to come along and enjoy.
