Since our first collaboration in 2016, Entourage have worked closely with Secret Cinema as their technical production partner as they have grown and developed their brand into one of the leading immersive entertainment companies in the UK.

We managed the technical CAD design of the show, the CDM construction and audience health and safety. Our team also coordinated the venue planning applications, and premise licensing with the local authority.
