Level 73 Strange Objects

Monday 25 September

We hear all the time about strange and wonderful objects found in, above, around and below the Building. These holidays, we’re opening up the Level 73 Cabinet of Curiosity and Wonder Exhibition, and we’d like YOU to curate it. In this workshop you will construct your very own curious exhibit: use your special story-hunting skills to discover crazy histories, strange facts and unbelievable secrets, then make a model of your findings. Fill your exhibit with artefacts, factoids, factual errors … it’s up to you! You now have a ready-made wonder room to spark stories whenever you’re low on inspiration.

Level 6 Trapdoor Quest

Tuesday 26 September

Xendria the Wizard and her friends turn the corner and are surprised by a fire-breathing dragon. What should they use to defeat it – a wrestling move, a burst of magic or … magic watering can?

In this exciting new role-playing workshop you will make up your own fantasy characters like Xendria and team up with fellow adventurers to tell the story of your group’s quest. The random turn of the cards will determine whether you find yourself knocked over by a giant or racing against time to save the world from saber-wielding shapeshifters. Log your exploits in an Adventurer’s Journal to take home as an inspiration for new fantasy adventures.


Level 38 SIA

Wednesday 27 September

Trouble is brewing in 100 Story Building. Pigeons are conspiring against humans and hamsters are plotting to steal the plans to a secret invention! In this workshop, you will head out to the Level 38 Secret Intelligence Agency assigned with the mission to infiltrate the animal kingdom. Armed with a secret identity including a new name, disguise, photo ID and passport, you will have to neutralise the nefarious plots and write an official report to your spy chief of your findings!
