In celebration of the release, Escape Entertainment is providing a unique one-night experience based on the film itself. This special edition diamond heist bank robbery event will be held for one night only on Friday the 25th of January.

King of Thieves tells the story of a group of retired men, who pull off a major jewellery heist in London's upmarket Hatton Garden. The film, which stars Brit actors including Michael Caine, Jim Broadbent, Tom Courtenay, is based on real events that took place in 2015.

The event will be open to the public, allowing everyone the chance to experience the very same thrills as the King of Thieves themselves. During this special one-night event, after dismantling the alarm, players will be challenged to retrieve a set of diamonds that have been hidden within the vault. Participants will need to solve puzzles and find hidden clues, as they have only one hour to retrieve the diamonds and escape the vault. Only the best will be able to pull off this ultimate diamond heist!

The King of Thieves inspired bank heist will be open to the public for one day only, on Friday, 25th of January. The event will take place at Escape Entertainment, George Yard London, EC3V 9DH. Each game is private and open for 2-6 players to participate. Tickets are £26pp and can be purchased here.

You’ll have to go and see for yourself if you and your friends have what it takes to pull off a heist of this magnitude.

King of Thieves will be released on Blu-ray and DVD January 21st.
