Dragons take centre stage at Drummohr House and the grounds near Musselburgh in Scotland, when the mighty magical beings put in an appearance for the Dragons of Drummohr augmented reality theatre experience.
Visitors to the Dragon Matrix theatre matrix are invited to join the Dragon Protection League in protecting dragons, who are being hunted by evil, ruthless, power-hungry beings.
Running from 10-29 October, this new adventure combines the worlds of gaming and storytelling to create something totally immersive for kids and adults alike.
The Dragon Bus will take audiences from the Prestongrange Museum Visitors Centre to the site. Using the Dragon Matrix augmented reality app, audiences will be tasked with assisting the Dragon Protection League in finding all of the lurking mythical beasts inside the house and around the grounds – aided and abetted by trolls, fairies and red herrings.
Huge light installations and sculptures will transform the forest into another world, with clues to follow and puzzles to solve in the elusive structures hidden between the trees. Giant dragons, both real and augmented, loom out of the shadows.
There are fairy settlements to stumble across, and goblins hiding in the cobwebbed corners of the old Drummohr mansion.
Dragons of Drummohr is a production by Vision Mechanics, an organisation which leads in encouraging communities to cooperate in the creation of original high quality arts projects.
Vision Mechanics will also be connecting with local schools in East Lothian, using the Dragon Matrix universe to engage children aged 9-11 with art, design, and issues surrounding conservation and the environment.
Dragons of Drummohr takes place from 10-19 October (excluding Mondays) at Drummohr House & Grounds, from 6pm-9pm (every 30 mins).
