Immersive experiences based on the worlds of Lara Croft and Peaky Blinders are set to open in Camden Market.

Next month sees the arrival of Tomb Raider The Live Experience, which casts ticketholders as globetrotting heroes solving mental and physical challenges to recover a powerful ancient artefact.

And this summer, The Vanguard Theatre, a new venue in Stables Market's Horse Hospital building hosts an immersive show based on Steven Knight's award winning TV drama about a Birmingham gang in the 1920s and 30s.

From snowy Finland, to a sinking ship, to a Costa Rican jungle and an ancient tomb, teams of eight players in the Tomb Raider experience follow clues and interact with live actors as they track down the villains who have snatched the treasure. The game from the makers of central London's The Crystal Maze Live Experience involved creating a 30,00sq ft arena in Stables Market.

Tom Lionetti-Maguire, founder of Little Lion Entertainment Limited who collaborated on the attraction with Paramount and Crystal Dynamics, said it was a "game changer for live experiences".

"Not only will people be whisked into a fantasy narrative on this journey, but they will find surprises, adventure and wonderment around every trap-laden corner. ‘Unique’ doesn’t begin to describe how much this legendary explorer’s experience is going to take people’s breath away. We make our guests the stars of the action, and what a wild time they are in for.”

A stone's throw from the canalside setting for the series' Solomon's Yard, they can mingle with costumed actors in recreated locations such as The Garrison pub, the Small Heath betting shop and Solomon's Bakery.
