Bocs is a dedicated space for immersive experiences and extended reality (XR).
Newly opened in 2022, Bocs is specially designed for 360-degree films and projections as well as XR experiences, including augmented reality, mixed reality and virtual reality.
The space is suitable for small groups and is wheelchair accessible, located on the ground floor.
Most events are free walk-in experiences, with no need to book. We occasionally have larger installations which are ticketed.
New to immersive experiences? Don't worry, our Bocs team will be there to set you up and guide you on your way.
