Join us for a free and playful event at Orleans House Gallery this summer! With workshops, interactive experiences, exciting exhibitions and food and drinks stalls, it’s set to be a perfect way to spend a creative, but chilled, Sunday afternoon.

Virtual Reality Experience: Terra Firma by Georgia Tucker

Set 50 years in the future, the viewer is transported to Earth’s last natural woodland. A plastic netted barrier has been used to protect the woodland, however, it has adapted and now thrives within the trees as an organism. The viewer, encased within the compartmental maze, can explore through the tunnels and never-ending structure of plastic.

Explore the Terra Firma and make your pledge to live a more sustainable life to ensure we protect what is left of the magic of nature.

Tickets are £10 per 15 minute slot.

Each ticket accommodates up to 2 people with a headset each. If you have a group of up to 4, please book 2 consecutive slots and you will be able to enjoy the experience together for a double session, sharing the headsets.

Suitable for ages 8 and up.

Bookings can be made here

Free Collaborative Installation with Leap then Look

Artists Lucy Cran and Bill Leslie invite you to join them in creation of an immersive and playful installation.

Criss-cross the room with hundreds of meters of string, spilling out into the courtyard. Explore compositions, shapes and projections, build models, and perform. Add your contribution to the developing art work in whatever way you choose, creating an interactive space for people of all ages to play together.
