“Another day and another new immersive show. But I’m a real sucker for fairy tales and I’m keen on circus and goodness who doesn’t like being invited to a masquerade ball? This one sounds a little like Masque of the Red Death—which is a lot to live up to, as Punchdrunk created an excellent take on that Edgar Allan Poe’s story not long ago. Oh and on some nights there is also food as part of the show adding a moreish element to a large scale immersive experience that offers a different perspective on Snow White, Gretel and the Big Bad Wolf.”


The Palace is Red, long live The Palace.

From the creators of immersive banquet show DIVINE PROPORTIONS, Shotgun Carousel Presents: A new immersive cabaret experience conjured from the darkest, most beguiling and magical folk tales. RED PALACE is a night of feast and fantasy, glitter and doom, within a Gothic masquerade that breathes new life into our most beloved fairytale characters, all fit for a beastly ball.

Don your mask and your devilish alter ego. Drink and be merry, for who knows how this party will end?

Join The Prince and his fairytale guests in the living labyrinth of the Red Palace and enjoy a decadent evening of feast and fantasy, glitter and doom. It is up to you to roam the halls of the Gothic masked ball and meet as many members of the court as you dare. Witness the beautiful, the brilliant, the wanton, the bizarre.

The eyes may be the window to the soul, but when a creature wears a mask they cannot be trusted. From the moment you join this pulsating and swirling revelry, nothing and no one is what they seem. Dance, dine and discover what you can to unravel the mystery at the heart of this ball.

Lose yourself down corridors and into mysteries. This is your chance to live your own fairy tale ending. Indulge in the delicacies of The Prince’s banquet to the sound of a ghostly orchestra. Watch dancers and jesters, contortionists and buffoons as ballerinas fly through the air. Rest assured, there will be Beauty and plenty of wine.

Follow the breadcrumbs, don’t lose your way. Your senses will be spinning and that’s just what the Red Palace wants.

Age Recommendation: 18+

Critic reviews

A hugely entertaining romp through the darker side of fairytales, performed with wit and great style

Everything Theatre

A sexy, smart immersive show that asks important questions with charm and irreverence

The Stage

There is potential for this performance to be innovative, giving audiences a new view of the fairy tales we know so well; however, with a loose and unstructured script, it fell flat
