Do you dare to leave the Safe Zone this Halloween?

Fear has a new meaning in Chelmsford this Halloween, as an all-new, fully-immersive experience opens to brave visitors for one night only.

Information about the Project is highly restricted; however we recently sent a Reporter along to the Project trials as a test subject. Unfortunately we have now lost all contact with him, but these final communications were received: “I’m reporting back to this channel in the hope that my message will be received. The project began at the safe zone in Chelmsford and subject transportation began to the classified CM1 location.”

The message continues “On arrival the project seemed to be going to plan, however subjects in turn began displaying odd behaviours, which are continuing to worsen. Not all have been affected, the rest of us are in quarantine – and horror continues to spread. I hear whispers of the Project being reinstated for Halloween, where subjects will experience the horrors of the Project face-on – this is definitely not for the faint hearted. As lock down continues I fear I may be the next individual to fall victim. Are you prepared to face your fears and come to my rescue?”

The Project is open, with test subject tickets available now for Saturday 28 October. Do you dare to investigate? Under cover of darkness, subjects will be transported to the Project’s classified Chelmsford location. After quarantine, subjects will be taken on a disturbing trail, encountering the Project’s horrors face-on.

Those lucky enough to survive will reach the Decontamination Ball, where food, drink and celebrations await. Fancy dress is positively encouraged – the best will be rewarded.

Created by Chelmsford City Council’s award-winning events team, the Sandford Project is taking place on the night of Saturday 28 October. The Sandford Project is strictly for those aged 18 and over.

Tickets are priced at £25 and are available from Chelmsford Civic Theatre’s Box Office on 01245 606505 or via For further Sandford Project information please like the official Facebook page

Please note: The Sandford Project is not suitable for those who are faint-hearted, pregnant or claustrophobic. Strobe light effects, smoke machines, loud noises and actor physical interaction will be used throughout the experience. With unknown terrain, suitable footwear is strongly recommended… for your best chance of survival.
