A great experience but...
1 August 2022
Me and my partner both enjoyed the experience, we both enjoy exploring art and culture, it was informative and creative. There is something for everyone to do. However, a warning to anyone who suffers from motion sickness, the immersive experience and VR experience caused me to feel quite sick :/

Van Gogh immersive
27 July 2022
Fascinating exhibition. Very interesting facts about Van Gogh. The immersive experience brings the paintings to life in a relaxed atmosphere and the optional VR is well worth the entry fee.
Geoff Vaughan Confirmed ticket purchaser
Exceeded my high expectations
17 July 2022
A totally wonderful experience and perfectly put together. Educational and enlightening. The modern technology enhances Van Gogh’s work, bringing it to life in a complimentary way making your involvement as a viewer emotive and not in anyway passive. The venue was the perfect choice linking the artist history and beliefs while being perfectly aesthetic.

Much effort has been made to cover Van Gogh's life story and make his art enjoyable. However Leicester venue was small and although cozy in the main hall people were getting in each others way and walking through the seated arena which was distracting to say the least.

Very good experience had a great time with 2 10 year olds and my friend staff were very pleasant and helpful and it was a very relaxing experience

Didn't know what to expect but found this experience so different to any exhibition I've been to before. I learnt a few more facts about Vincent Van Gogh too. Overall I really enjoyed the unexpected experience and am thinking about re-visiting.

Short but sweet
12 July 2022
The main room was brilliant! If there had been two more smaller rooms similar to the main one it would have been 5 stars. Personally I think the ticket price was a bit too expensive for what you get. Especially as the VR experience room is an extra £3 on top of your ticket.
Rachael Confirmed ticket purchaser
10 July 2022
Informative, creative and money well spent! Beginning with the walk through and background information. Visit the ‘bedroom’ and then into the large seating area where you relax and let his work ‘wash’ over you. Don’t miss out on immersing yourself in his works of art, treat yourself to the virtual experience……..WOW!

A really positive experience. Really enjoyed the presentations. They are very well and imaginatively put together. The VR is a must - absolutely brilliant experience and must be the way things will go with this type of exhibition. Very much recommended.

Most interesting experience with wonderful imaging. Enjoyed seeing his life expressed in this way. Realised the brilliance pf his work. However, I thought that the imaging in the main body of the church was a bit longwinded. Overall, Brilliant!

The experience was excellent. However, I'm a powered wheelchair user & the pavements around the venue were simply awful. I would not go back. In fact, I'd probably avoid inner Leicester.

I don't usually leave reviews but I have to say that this is one of the best things I've been to see in a long time. Educationally interesting but also entertaining and quite moving in places. Having gone with my daughter I intend going again with my wife but either way, if not, I'll go again on my own before it finishes.

Well worth a visit
30 May 2022
After hearing good things about the exhibition & being in Leicester for the weekend, i booked a ticket and I'm so glad I did. The entire experience was excellent and informative mixing the artwork with technology to create a vision that is honestly beautiful. Being set in an church added to the atmosphere and to spend time watching the animation & listening to the music was lovely. Also, don't be tempted to skip on the VR experience afterwards - it was incredible too. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Stuart Bilsland Confirmed ticket purchaser
Mind blowing art
27 May 2022
Visited the Van Gogh Immersive experience at All Saints Church Leicester. I was looking forward to this visit and knew what to expect through watching clips on YouTube, but was absolutely blown away by the actual experience.To call it “Immersive” is spot on!Its a rollercoaster of colour explosions and music which meet and leave you breathless. I wanted to do it all again immediately and am already planning on a return trip but to a different venue.Fabulous experience 👍😍

From the minute we entered the building, we were made to feel welcome and valued. The exhibition was informative and interesting and the immersive experience was utterly fascinating. Following this we elected to have the VR experience and this made Van Gogh's work come alive - well worth the extra. All in all - brilliant!

An enjoyable hour or so
16 May 2022
Sitting in a deckchair in the main church hall with a moving display all round us was excellent. We paid the extra £3 for the VR experience and once again we were not disappointed. Well done all involved

So pleased that I finally visited the Van Gogh experience. The information in the first room sets the seen for a truly stunning experience, bringing Van Goghs work to life. Being set in the old church just adds to the overall affect. Don't miss out on the VR experience, it is truly wonderful.

Amazing Van Gogh experience
18 April 2022
A fantastic way to enjoy some of Van Gogh's work. Sitting in the room with walls and floors covered in moving Van Gogh paintings was brilliant. The optional video using VR was very special
Jan T Confirmed ticket purchaser
Wonderful way to see experience paintings
17 April 2022
Great balance between learning about and enjoying his paintings, truly immersive and well worth seeing.
Ian Confirmed ticket purchaser
16 April 2022
A great experience as long as you are prepared to ‘soak it up’. Don’t whizz through looking for the next bit. Stroll, stand, sit, lie down, relax and absorb it. I even did my first wax crayon picture for several decades 😂 The highlight for me was the Virtual Reality journey, well worth the extra £3. But all three of us loved the whole experience. I’m mid sixties, son is thirty something and grandson is six. Something for everyone.

I adored this experience, I am a massive Van gogh from so travelled from Notts to see this. My 12 year old sister enjoyed it too! The VR is so worth the extra

Wonderful experience in Van Gogh Leicester. The children really engaged and a great menu of interactive, digital and analogue choices. 😍

An enjoyable experience
10 April 2022
The immersive Van Gogh experience was very cleverly executed and all my family enjoyed it (including hard to please teenagers!). A toddler running around screaming detracted form the ambience a little unfortunately. The VR headset experience was brilliant but a little surprised it wasn’t part of the admission cost. The church provided an unusual and atmospheric setting.

Amazing Exhibition for all ages

Wonderful use of space and various mediums to tell the story of a talented troubled man, well worth the visit and could tell others of all ages enjoying the event

Absolutely wonderful few hours spent here on Sunday! First of all held in a church ( cool!!) secondly just such a clever and unique way of showing art to even the most uncultured ( my partner) .. Art just comes alive!, it really does! And then just for a measly cost of a coffee £3.00 you can get transported to a virtual Van Gogh Land of discovery!, incredibly amazing and thoroughly enjoyable! The best few quid I have spent in a long time!,,,

fantastic es Fantastic experience
16 March 2020
We went to the Van Gogh experience in Leicester. Overall it was a great experience. Good points - The Immersive Experience was fantastic. I don't how it was done but it was enlightening and relaxing. We sat in the deck chairs and took in the film all around us. The music added to the whole experience. It was absorbing. The VR experience which you pay £3.00 extra is worth every penny. My parents (both in the 80s) absolutely loved it as did we and it must have been very funny hearing all our comments whilst we were in the VR. Bad points - The church was very cold. Whilst sitting watching the Immersive experience you get very cold and despite heaters being on throughout the building they were inadequate for the size of the church. The other thing that was not that well designed was the background information on Van Gogh which was on the walls as you walked in was very high and not easy to read. Not quite sure why it was so high. Aside from these two points it was very good and would certainly recommend it.

This was most enjoyable and you really must pay the extra £3 for the VR part.
