Riptide’s Lost Present – An Interactive Festival Adventure Across The City

Riptide, an innovative theatre company in Leeds, is creating an interactive festive adventure to help restore the spirit of Christmas. The Lost Present is a unique, live experience which will take place from Mon 10 – 16 December. 

Anyone can play and will be given a map to send them on their mission, which is to discover magical sets and have magical encounters – all across the City.  This is a treasure hunt – a family adventure with a difference.

With the help of the map, you will make your own festive potion, deliver lost Christmas cards to secret places and make wishes.   Expect the unexpected along the way – and treats!

Alexander Palmer, the artistic director of Riptide, directs The Lost Present, which Leeds BID has commissioned to be incorporated into the lights and tree trail.  This is a completely fresh way for many people to look at theatre and all it has to offer.

If you have children of 6 and above and you can all walk or be assisted between locations, then this immersive experience lasts around one hour.  If you prefer to take it at a slower pace and in stages, that’s fine.  You just need to hold on to your tickets.

Weekdays: 3pm – 8pm.
Weekends: 12pm – 8pm.

Tickets: Adults: £5
Kids (under 16 years): Free

Tickets are on sale now through Riptide’s website.
