Local media, politicians, stakeholders, Friends of the Hippodrome and community groups were treated to an exclusive advanced showing of the immersive exhibition ahead of it officially opening to the public today.

Created by Grande Exhibitions, Van Gogh Alive is a digital art experience using stunning projections, classical music and scent which gives you the unique opportunity to step on to the Hippodrome’s main stage and truly venture into Van Gogh’s world.
