Virtual reality for seniors (March-May 2021)

In this series of free sessions held at Clarkson Library on Mondays and Thursdays, strap on a pair of high-tech goggles and experience the sights and sounds of distant places through the magic of virtual reality.

Explore the past or embark on adventures you have always dreamt of doing. Visit the ruins of Ancient Rome, swim with dolphins – there’s all sorts of experiences to enjoy.

Virtual reality has been shown to have a positive effect on mood, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve social connection through shared experience.

A free morning tea will be provided to participants to enjoy whilst they chat about their virtual reality experience.

Space is limited and bookings are essential. Click the links below to book via Eventbrite.
