Welcome to The Institute.  

We conduct experiments in to the power of imaginations.  

We want to know what happens to your mind when you read.  

We want to get inside your heads. 

It is all perfectly safe. Trust us. 

The Day I Fell Into A Book is an immersive storytelling adventure for families and school groups that explores the magic of reading and the vitality of young imaginations. Using binaural sound recordings, intricate lighting technology and projection, the audience is taken into a lost world of classic tales. The stories seep into the room and come alive all around us as we venture further into the deep recesses of our minds.
