A virtual reality theatre is coming to Nine Elms.

Wandsworth Council teamed up with LIVR, a VR streaming service for theatre and the performing arts, and VR headset maker Pico Interactive.

The pilot scheme will see the eight-seat theatre installed at the ROSE Community Centre.

Councillor Steffi Sutters said: "I'm thrilled that theatre shows are coming direct to local residents through this incredible virtual reality experience.

"As arts and culture grows in Nine Elms, it's fantastic that we can bring performing arts into the heart of the community and I hope as many Nine Elms residents as possible sign up to put a headset on and watch a performance.

“We’re really looking forward to starting regular VR viewing nights, which, alongside our new Community Theatre Tickets scheme in partnership with Battersea Arts Centre and Theatre 503, will offer residents plenty of affordable ways to enjoy live theatre this autumn.”

The experience was recently trialled at the Nine Elms Happy Streets festival, and it will begin operating on a weekly basis from late September.

It will be open to people of all ages and is free.
