The Droves

  • Colab Factory 74 Long Lane London, England, SE1 4AU United Kingdom (map)

The Droves is an immersive theatre show, designed by kids, for adults.

You’re invited into a secret community of children living deep beneath a derelict carpet factory. For decades they’ve hidden from adults, growing strange in the darkness - but now they’re asking you in… Unsettling dilemmas, mushroom forests and at least one gorilla await you at the door.

Part immersive experience, part escape game, BAFTA award winning company Coney present the imaginations of 6-11 year olds as they take over their own site in London Bridge for this unique theatrical event.


"If you want to see the future of British theatre now, Coney is one of the companies to watch"

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian


The Droves has been created over 3 years. Coney worked with over 550 young people in the their home of Tower Hamlets and beyond to bring together the most creative individuals to create The Droves Young Company.
