The Golden Key

The Maze of Adventures


Associate Director of the Maze of Adventures Arlo Howard

with Coney

Commissioned by The City of London Corporation and created by Coney and friends, The Golden Key was a free event that transformed the City of London for one day only with a huge programme of immersive theatre, games, and performances.

Exploring the secrets of the City and opening up its doors to people of all ages, the event took place in over 17 locations, from local landmarks to hidden corners of the City. The project was curated and produced by Coney in partnership with a network of artists and companies; featuring 76 performances, games and installations, 32 new commissions and over 200 artists, and the event was attended by 32,000 people.

The Maze of Adventures – twelve smartphone-guided adventures across the Square Mile inspired by the City’s untold stories. These adventures started at iconic red doors installed in public squares, leading to immersive theatre pieces inside secret locations, including a church crypt, a five-star hotel, a livery hall and a Victorian bath house. Played by over 6500 people.
