Wimbledon is the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world and it’s no surprise that it is one of the most anticipated events in England each summer. Having lived over here now for nearly two years, I’ve become more and more into the tournament and although we didn’t get to go this year we are definitely going to get tickets to experience it next year. I have a lot of friends who absolutely LOVE Wimbledon and are lucky enough to attend every year and for those of you with an affinity for the event – Stella Artois has teamed up with Wimbledon to send you back in time to the first-ever Wimbledon match in 1877!
The event takes place this week from the 7th – 10th July at MC Motors in Dalston, where a time portal will be awaiting you. You’ll be able to step into the time portal and travel back in time to Victorian London, where your mission is to find your way to the famed tennis tournament with the help of Her Majesty the Queen and a host of quirky Victorian friends, of course. A barman will be on hand to top you up with a Stella Artois, which was also brought to London in 1877, whilst on your sojourn adventure through time. Once you’re ready to head back to the future, the main bar will be screening Wimbledon 2016 so you can see how far the world’s biggest tennis tourney has come since the beginning!
Olivier nominated theatre troupe Les Enfantes Terribles will be performing and it will definitely be an immersive event not to be missed by Wimbledon’s most discerning admirers!
So go on then, give this immersive experience a go – what could be better than traveling back in time and seeing Wimbledon and Stella Artois when they were still little knowns in the world? Tickets are just £13.50 and includes two complimentary libations. Book now by clicking this link here.
