Virtual Reality: Beethoven’s Fifth

Cheltenham High Street
Ages 7+ children must be accompanied by an adult.

Last summer over 2,000 people visited our Virtual Reality Orchestra, and in 2018 it’s back with a whole new experience.

This time, travel into space with the Philharmonia Orchestra and their Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen: You will be at the heart of their performance of Beethoven’s gripping Fifth Symphony while marvelling at the mind-bending virtual reality footage shot by Google’s VR team in partnership with NASA. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, and the Golden Records that they each carried, the orchestral performance is intercut with scenes from interstellar space, imagining where Voyager 1 is travelling now to create an unmissable experience!


Fantastic, brilliant, breathtaking
