If you are curious about trying on a virtual reality headset and seeing what it is like to watch theatre shows this way, you are welcome to come along and try it out for 5-10 minutes without booking. If you like what you see, you could book for future screenings or stay on to watch there and then, subject to availability.
To deliver the screenings, Wandsworth Council has teamed up with LIVR – the world’s first virtual reality streaming service for theatre and the performing arts – and virtual reality headset maker, Pico Interactive.
The recommended age guidance for the autumn series of screenings is 12+ so parental/guardian discretion is advised.
Spaces are limited and there will be a small number of places on the door if not fully booked.
Wednesday night is theatre night!
