If you go down to the woods today, make sure it’s The Wood Beneath The World in Leeds Town Hall Crypt.
Adding to our growing arts, culture and tourism PR credentials, we were appointed to manage the PR for this ground-breaking project this winter, and we’re really excited to be part of such a creative and unique experience.
The Wood Beneath The World is a large-scale, magical forest installation hidden in the depths of Leeds Town Hall Crypt, which has been growing silently for decades. Its roots and trees have now burst through the floors and walls, and the wood has taken over.
It will be open to the public from 17 November to 10 January (we’re having a sneak preview at the press evening we’ve arranged tonight), allowing audiences an immersive hour-long adventure with an element of site-specific performance by mysterious characters that live there.
During this time the Town Hall’s old Victorian cells will also play host to The Wood Beneath the World’s pop-up bar, where visitors can mull over the experience and indulge in mulled wines, ciders and craft beers.
The Leeds City Council project has been created by creative design studio, Lord Whitney, who have built the other-worldly set that includes all-encompassing use of lighting and sound to create a truly mesmerising experience for visitors of all ages.
Without giving too much away, it’s an absolute treat, so visit www.thewoodbeneaththeworld.co.uk to get your tickets for the ultimate festive experience before they go!
