This ticket is only available for 13 years+

25 minute VR experience from Limina featuring 2 short films (both shown in 1 screening):

* VALEN'S REEF: AN UNPRECEDENTED SUCCESS STORY. Despite only being the size of G​reat Britain, this unique area in Raja Ampat holds more species of fish than the entire Great Barrier Reef and more species of coral than the Caribbean Sea.

* 700 SHARKS: a VR dive in the water of a tiny atoll in Polynesia, where the world's largest shark pack are hunting during the night. Being among 700 sharks, with all sense on alert, is an experience of rare intensity.

Please arrive at the Upstairs Classroom 10 minutes before your booked screening time.

🎶 AFTER-PARTY 🎶

All ticket-holders over 18 years old come and join us at Mr Wolfs (BS11TG) from 8pm onwards to soak up the good vibes from the day and listen to some awesome music:

* Soda Cat (Acoustic set) - London based jazz/funk band starting the night right.

* The Fowlers - Bristol based funk/soul band with vibes galore.

* The Majestic London based roots reggae/ska band will be headlining the night and guarantee to get you jumping!
