As lockdown restrictions are eased, Leicester's most exciting temporary exhibition is preparing to re-open to the public.

Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is housed in the beautiful All Saint's Church on Highcross Street and delighted tens of thousands of visitors before government advice forced the experience to close on 20th March. Now the organisers, Exhibition Hub, are pleased to welcome guests back to the church for this unique interactive adventure from Saturday 4th July.

Safety is of course a top priority for the team, and a number of measures have been put in place to give guests peace of mind when visiting. Social distancing is indicated by floor markers and chairs placed in the main exhibition hall, hand sanitisers will be available to visitors and staff will be following a rigorous regime of sanitising high traffic areas through the day. There will also be PPE in place for guests wishing to participate in the additional virtual reality experience. Visitors are requested to wear masks and follow directions to ensure everyone's safety.

Creative Director Mario Iacampo said “we are delighted to once more ask visitors to step into the magical paintings of Van Gogh with us. We hope an hour or two of escapism in our unique immersive world will be just what people want after months of lockdown.”

In line with government guidance, the exhibition will re-open on 4th July, with ticket numbers limited to allow for proper social distancing at 1m+. The experience will be open at All Saints' Church on Highcross Street until 31st August 2020, with the nearest available parking less than 100m away at the John Lewis car park.
