ENJOY ONE OF THE GREATEST SPORTS TOURNAMENTS OF ALL TIME… BY BEING THERE.
Step into the world of Wimbledon in 1980. Join us in an immersive experience as we bring to life the Championships of Borg, McEnroe, Cawley, Evert and Connors. Come back in time to an era when a VCR was all the rage and Pac-Man had just come out. Fila and Tacchini, Wilson and Dunlop, Xanadu and Don’t Stop Me Now.
This multi-sensory event will allow you and your friends to explore 1980s life through film, installations, food and drink. We’ll bring to life the broadcast of the day while you pick up some strawberries and cream, Pimm’s or Robinsons as you immerse yourself in one of sport's great landmarks.
The event will incorporate a mix of broadcast footage, live actors, projection and period props, with multi-sensory interactive experiences across 4 hours of fun. Expect to be thrust into the heart of the action as you explore different stages of 1980 and the tournament, culminating in a unique audio visual show focused on the legendary men’s final.
FOOD & DRINK
Tickle your taste buds with food and drink from yesteryear. Our hand-picked food and drink traders will curate menus that blend quintessential Wimbledon tradition with a 1980’s twist. We may not have the little eggs covered in paprika, but expect a range of wonderful food options alongside your glass of champagne.
MUSIC & FASHION
Fashion in the 80’s was, and still is, iconic. Bold, brave, and bright. From ripped jeans, to oversized blazers. Come dressed for the occasion. Whether in your fanciest 80’s style, or your best tennis gear, this is Wimbledon after all! Make it memorable!
