Libraries across Northern Ireland host the BBC’s virtual reality tour this summer

Experience BBC Storytelling in Virtual Reality

As part of its partnership with Libraries NI the BBC is taking its be​st virtual reality experiences out on tour this summer, bringing them to local libraries across Northern Ireland. 

Throughout the summer, members of the public will be able to pop into libraries across Northern Ireland to try out experiences from the BBC, including an opportunity to step inside Doctor Who’s TARDIS for the very first time. 

Here’s a glimpse of what to expect.


There will also be opportunities to have a go at using the award-winning 1943 Berlin Blitz VR Experience, which was created by BBC Northern Ireland and Immersive VR Education, in partnership with BBC VR Hub; and to travel the Nile and explore the heart of the Democratic Republic in the Congo VR Experience

Please read the Guidelines for use.​
