Dreams, memories, and reflections… The third instalment of the Sensory Stories series, Lucid Realities, invites visitors to navigate previously unknowable worlds. Step inside dreams, nightmares, fantasies, and recollections such as walking in space, inhabiting another person’s body, flying like a bird, or exploring secret locations. Being transported to past, current, and imagined realities using immersive technologies, and being exposed to people and situations that are typically inaccessible to us, elicits more visceral and emotional reactions.

Experience new stories and interactive installations from storytelling pioneers that incorporate technologies ranging from artificial intelligence, mixed reality, olfaction, haptics and facial recognition and allow you to explore, touch, and feel—and ask questions. The programming features a collection of the very best new immersive experiences that engage all of the senses and redefine the way we experience narrative.

Some works contain technologies or content not suitable for all audiences. Please refer to the complete list of works (below) for any applicable restrictions. Works listed as 13 + or 18 + are strictly reserved for visitors of those ages (on the day of their visit). Before purchasing tickets, please review our health and safety policy.
