Welcome to the Deadhouse

Earlier this month, Mask Events teamed up with Somerset House to deliver a truly immersive and gothic event working to the theme ‘beauty in decay. Unsuspecting guests arrived for champagne and canapés before being greeted by the Gatekeeper of the Underworld and ushered through the Dickensian Lightwells.

Eery characters dwelled in the shadows as the Gatekeeper explained that the inhabitants of the Deadhouse still believed they were part of the living world. Decadent cocktails were provided by We Are Tea and Greenall’s Gin while the eccentric and deadly floral displays were all provided by collaborator Urban Flower Firm.

To read more about the concept of this one-off event and to view a short film produced by Clockwise Media please see Mask’s website here.
