Experience the Philharmonia Orchestra in VR
Concert-goers are invited to a free virtual reality experience in the Corn Exchange foyer from 6:15 pm on, the night of the concert. With the help of state of the art virtual reality technology, join the Philharmonia Orchestra onstage at London's Royal Festival Hall as they perform an extract of Sibelius's Fifth Symphony. You will be transported right into the middle of the orchestra with an ambisonic audio and 3D visual recording.
The same virtual reality experience will be available free to the public from 11am to 4pm outside the Central Library in the Lion Yard.
Please note, virtual reality is not suitable for children under 7 and can elicit strong physiological responses, including motion sickness, nausea, disorientation, blurred vision and other discomforts. Virtual reality is not suitable for those who suffer from epilepsy, seizures or convulsions, or anyone with a history of blackouts or fainting.
