‘A.Z. Fell and Co’ brings to life the infamous bookshop from the bestselling novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
Free to enter experience to include escape room, immersive performance, interactive sets, prop exhibition, hidden treasures and surprises
Open to the public 1-2 June
Six part adaptation of Good Omens, starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen to launch on Prime Video 31st May
A five-floor immersive experience and exhibition disguised as a Soho bookshop is set to open in London, inspired by the much anticipated new Amazon Original series Good Omens, premiering on Prime Video on 31st May.
Taking over a Victorian town house in the heart of Soho, the event will immerse fans in the weird and wonderful world of Good Omens. Adapted from the fan favourite 1990 novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, the six-part series is an hilarious story of the world hurtling towards the apocalypse, with only the unlikely duo of an angel (Michael Sheen) and a demon (David Tennant) to stop it.
Quick witted fans of the book may recognise the bookshop ‘A.Z. Fell and Co.’ when it appears in Greek Street in Soho, with the show’s 1934 Bentley Derby Coupe parked outside. Modelled on the character Aziraphale’s (Sheen) run down bookshop hideout, the unassuming facade might well be overlooked by those not in the know. However on entry it will quickly become clear that this is no ordinary bookshop.
Fans will be given the chance to explore immersive set replicas, take on an escape room challenge starting in a recreation of hell, explore a rich array of props and costumes from the show and discover original artwork and on-set drawings from acclaimed portrait artist Lorna May Wadsworth.
The exhibition and experience will be open to the public at 19 Greek Street on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of June, coinciding with all episodes becoming available to stream on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 31st May.
The full experience is free of charge, and entry to the exhibition elements will be through walk-ins. The Escape Room experience, which lasts approx 30mins, will be ticketed through EventBrite. With tickets limited and the imminent apocalypse, well, inevitable, fans are encouraged to book their places before the apocalypse inconveniently brings about the end of the world.
