Over the years. Labyrinth has become a popular cult classic inspiring puppeteers, artists, creators, and musicians around the globe.

And if you find this all thirsty work, why not join the Worm & the Mrs for a nice cuppa tea in the ‘Meet the Mrs’ themed tearoom. 

Zay Mirmalek, CEO of Thames Con, organiser of the Labyrinth Experience & Masked Ball, promises that the event will be a ‘fun, nostalgic and immersive experience’.  Mirmalek adds “Jim Henson created a coming-of-age masterpiece that fills viewers with joy, enchantment, and a sense of belonging. At the Labyrinth Experience, we aim to recreate some of that magic and not only celebrate the film, but also Jim’s birthday!” Jim Henson would have been 87 on 24th September 2023.
