Three Sixty Entertainment’s first production, Peter Pan, was the smash hit live show of 2009. Out-selling the West End’s Mamma Mia!, the tented production which uses state-of-the-art 360 degree projection effects to transport the audience right into the middle of the story, enjoyed a fantastic initial run in Kensington Gardens, followed by a stint in the O2’s Millennium Gardens before heading to San Francisco.

Co-founder Colin led an unprecedented funding effort securing £2.75m from 58 separate angel investors in just four months. With more adaptations of children’s classics on the horizon, and a theatre model that can travel the globe, Three Sixty Entertainment is on course to become one of the most successful theatre ventures of the decade.
