The world’s most visited multi-sensory experience, Van Gogh Alive, has just over a week left at MediaCity. Originally due to end in January, the incredibly popular exhibition will finish its run at MediCity on Sunday 27th February 2022.

So it’s now your final chance to see the iconic ‘Sunflower Selfie room’ and life-sized version walk-in representation of Van Gogh’s ‘Bedroom in Arles’ painting.

Experience over 3,000 images from the artist that are spectacularly presented with stunning detail, including iconic works like Starry Night, Sunflowers and lesser-known paintings that were inspired by his love of Japanese woodprints.

State-of-the-art SENSORY4™ immersive gallery technology immaculately displays Van Gogh’s work in a kaleidoscope of colour, alongside an evocative classical score delivered through a high-fidelity 3D sound system. The combination of sound, visuals and aromas of Provence will give visitors “the sensation of walking right into his paintings as if they are living and breathing.”

Van Gogh Alive features an interpretive area where you can learn more about Van Gogh’s life and works as well as interactive art stations where you can create your own art with the help of expert video tutorials.

Visitors can create their own souvenirs within a life-sized walk-in representation of Van Gogh’s ‘Bedroom in Arles’ painting and the iconic ‘Sunflower selfie room’ – a 360° mirrored room complete with hundreds of sunflowers that has delighted Instagram feeds the world over.

Van Gogh Alive is supporting The Christie charity and using the experience as a platform to help raise vital funds to continue its incredible work leading the way for cancer care, research, and education. Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to make a donation to The Christie charity when either purchasing tickets or while at the exhibition.

Tickets are priced from £22.00 for adults and £15.00 for children, with concessions and school group discounts available.

Visitors can opt to support The Christie charity when booking or visiting. Event organisers are hoping to raise vital funds for the charity, to continue its incredible work leading the way for cancer care, research, and education.
