Mamma Mia! the Party the immersive dining experience to open at the O2
The immersive theatrical dining experience is wending its way to London
ABBA member Björn Ulvaeus has announced that his immersive version of Mamma Mia! is to open in London.
The 'theatrical and dining experience' originally launched in Stockholm and offers participants the chance to feel as though they are in a Greek taverna while Nikos and his family perform around them.
A specially-adapted venue within the O2 will host the event, with architects Steve Tompkins from Haworth Tompkins transforming the venue, complete with a fountain, olive trees and bougainvillea.
Ulvaeus originally decided to create the party when he saw so many people enjoying the musical. The Stockholm version opened in 2016 and is in its third year.
Ulvaeus is producing the party with Ingrid Sutej and tickets will go on sale this autumn. Mamma Mia! the Party is set to open in late spring 2019.
There were originally plans to open the immersive version on a space at the South Bank.
