Step into the future at Mitcham Fair Green!
For one day, Mitcham’s General Giles Social Club will become an exciting VR entertainment space where you can watch a great selection of 360-degree films. Watch ‘Gloomy Eyes’, a VR animation of a zombie love story starring Colin Farrell, or explore the depths of a 16,500-year-old cave in Santander with the interactive documentary ‘Memoria: Stories of La Garma’. ‘Judi Dench: My Oak Tree VR’ will allow visitors to fly around the Dame’s six-acre garden and go on a ‘360-degree journey’ through her favourite oak tree.
Showcasing the latest immersive experiences, Mitcham VR Festival on Saturday, 7th March will be the culmination of FilmMerton, the year-long project aimed at encouraging participating with film throughout the London Borough of Merton. At Mitcham VR Festival, interactive Virtual Reality experiences will be showcased alongside 360-degree films and a unique Augmented Reality installation to give visitors the opportunity to engage with a broad range of immersive experiences, from sci-fi thrillers to romantic dramas and comedy flicks. The event will be free. Walk-ins will be accepted on the day but due to limited capacity we highly encourage you to book your time slot using the event organiser link shown in the Ticket Info section.
All the Fun of the Fair
All the Fun of the Fair will enable Mitcham VR visitors to step into their local history through the technology of an Augmented Reality installation. With a unique soundscape and images springing to life on iPads, All the Fun of the Fair will transport audiences back in time to the Mitcham Fair, rumoured to be the oldest fair in England.
