Covent Garden Grotto

For Christmas 2016, I worked with BlippAR and Timebased Events to create a Christmas grotto in Covent Garden. The walk-through grotto took guests onto a London rooftop to meet Father Christmas, then back down the chimney to Covent Garden plaza where, using augmented reality app BlippAR, you helped him to find his lost reindeer.

During the experience my illustrations could be ‘Blipped’ using your phone or tablet bringing to life the London skyline and a friendly London policeman who helps you on your reindeer hunt.
