Theatre Event


Presented by Harrogate Theatre & Il Pixel Rosso, join us for a journey of adventure and imagination. 

An exceptional and unforgettable theatrical experience that puts participants into the heart of the Tour de France like no other.

Join Harrogate Theatre’s virtual peloton and star in your own Grand Depart, with some brilliant twists thanks to the playful bunch at Il Pixel Rosso.

Video goggles and headphones mean you become the star of your own Tour de France as you’re immersed into the race – with a brilliantly fun twist.

Though you start out on the right track, you’ll take a wrong turn, ending up on a fantastical voyage. It’s the Tour de France meets Wacky Races via the opening credits of Police Squad!.

This promises to be a very special experience for a maximum of four people. Each participant will be fitted with video goggles and headphones and follow audio instructions for simple actions that mirror corresponding actions in the film.

“Dizzying and hilarious… a brilliant and immersive performance” - The Indepent on previous show The Great Spavaldos

“The tantasingly dreamy, intense little show is both good fun and thoroughly disorientating. For a short spell it takes you both out of your own body and yet more deeply into it at the same time.” - The Times on previous show The Great Spavaldos

“Loved it! Like nothing I’ve experienced before – totally involved, really felt like we were there – didn’t want to get off.” - Audience member on previous show The Great Spavaldos
