A dangerously spontaneous democratic game show which 'asks the audience' to come up with ideas and then vote on what to do with the GBP 2,000 of box office takings.

GBP 2,000 buys anything from a pre-fab log cabin to a 91 carat diamond; 9,642 packets of crisps, or rent on a London flat for everyone to use.

Gamble it, donate it, invest it, waste it?

Bring your ideas, your tenner and your vote to the Unicorn and decide.

Part of the London Games Festival.

Every idea and decision will be instantly visualised on a giant screen. Using an 'ask the audience' computer vision voting system, participants can shape the agenda of the evening, propose ideas, debate them and vote on anything they like - even the rules of the game!

Who Wants to Be? was inspired by the 'ask the audience' option on the popular TV game show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? In asking the audience to set the questions, provide the answers and decide what the rules are, Who Wants to Be? gives people an insight into the possibilities of their collective imagination.

Previous Who Wants to Be? game shows have helped large groups of people develop a collective vision for a much-loved public park in Norwich and enabled an audience of 100 to communally purchase and co-own a piece of woodland in Wales.
