Learn about cutting-edge technology, immersive computer games and the social challenges of virtual reality - a fascinating lecture with VR developer Dave Ranyard, in partnership with Goldsmiths University.
Virtual reality lets us experience a world different from the one we live in. And much like the disruptive technologies that came before it - from electricity to TV, computers and smartphones - there’s no longer any doubt that it will significantly impact the way we live.

The evening will particularly appeal to those with an interest in computer games and development, as well as anyone interested in new cultural directions, cutting-edge technology, TV and entertainment. Tickets are limited so book your place now - and learn how virtual reality will impact the ways we experience and interact with the worlds around us.
