Immersive Events at Shepton Mallet Prison

Established in 2015, Immersive Events or ‘IME’ is an award winning, interactive, immersive events company based in Shepton Mallet Prison. They specialise in designing and running events nationwide from Scream Parks & Scare Mazes to Escape Rooms, overnight stays to prison breaks, from corporate training to Hens and Stags. IME has proudly been nominated for a SCAR 2016 – Best Zombie Survival Event for Lockdown and became winner of SCAR 2017 Experience for Lockdown I, Lockdown II and Lockdown Origins. Annual, monthly and weekly a huge variety of events are held at Shepton Mallet Prison.

Every year over the Halloween period IME host the sold-out event ‘The Street’. This scare maze is to be endured for a gruelling 25 minutes and is one of a kind. The scare maze is riddled with twists and turns, jump scares and horrors. Due to popular demand, ‘The Street’ at Shepton Mallet Prison, Somerset's Ultimate Scare Maze is re-opening for Christmas; with the addition of Santa's GROTto! Tickets are just £10 and are now on sale. The event will be held on the 21st and 22nd December. Let’s hope you have been good this year!

Escape Rooms are held every Saturday at 11:00am, the maximum group size is 18 people and pre-booking is recommended. To escape from a cell in Shepton Mallet you have to complete a sequence of riddles, puzzles and a series of mind-challenging games. Think you can escape from your prison cell? Tickets are just £20pp.

New for 2019, IME’s Prison Break event is a much larger scale of an escape room and is heavily interactive. Yourself ‘The Criminal’, is processed by ‘officers’ in reception, giving you the immersed feeling that a convict would have experienced before being led to your cell. To escape not only the cell but escape the prison itself, you will have to answer riddles, solve puzzles and out think the officers.

Battle archery is a private pre-book event that requires a minimum of 8 people and costs £25pp for two hours. With bows and foam-tipped safety arrows, this exciting action-packed game offers mission based archery experience. Bespoke packages are also available for this event with the option to add on a cell escape at £35pp (1 hour for each activity).

Shepton Mallet Prison, offers a specific type of backdrop and scenery which can’t be accessed in many places. This provides a great opportunity for a truly unique experience for your event or party. Our packages for private parties, stags, hens & birthdays can be custom built to suit your needs. From cocktail making to scare experiences we are sure to put together a package that works for you.

We have developed our team building and corporate training days to suit every business, big or small. Team building days aim to motivate your team, increase productivity, collaboration and communication and develop a business with forward thinking employees. Our Team Building days focus on fun and collaborative activities for employees to create and share team memories. We can mix and match any of the activities to create a team building session that is right for you, alternatively you can contact us and we will happily look at customising a package for you.


New events are also in the pipeline for 2019, keep a look out!!
