Alternate Realities

The Alternate Realities Exhibition is free of charge and open to all.

Prior booking is essential for Immersive VR at Millennium Gallery S1 2PP, Virtual Reality Portal on Tudor Square S1 2LA, and Virtual Reality Campfire at Upper Chapel S1 2JD.

For Immersive VR at Millennium Gallery, visit the Doc/Info Point outside the exhibition room to book your hour–long slot. Once inside the exhibition room, you can book for each individual project by speaking to a VR volunteer.

In advance of your visit to Immersive VR, please consult the online programme to decide which projects you would most like to view. It is not possible to experience every project in one hour so we encourage you to return if you would like to see them all.

For Virtual Reality Portal on Tudor Square and Virtual Reality Campfire at Upper Chapel, look out for VR Volunteers at each venue who will be able to book you a slot.

Sessions will be available to book daily, with some slots available for the next day. There is limited availability for each experience so please do book early.

For the Interactive Exhibition at Millennium Gallery no booking is required.
