The dome is the first of its kind in Europe – the Market Hall offers experiences at the cutting edge of immersive tech.
Open to everyone, and with a wide range of events and experiences for all the family, the dome invites you to explore immersive realities without the need for a VR headset. The Market hall will also offer educational immersive experiences and workshops for all ages and abilities.
Alongside mind-blowing immersive experiences, the Market Hall also provides inspiring co-work space for all kinds of creative, digital and immersive businesses; the heart of the region’s emerging immersive tech ‘cluster’.
