Van Gogh Alive, the world-famous immersive experience that explores the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh, comes to the newly refurbished Brighton Dome Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre for its inaugural event.

Featuring over 3,000 images of the Dutch artist's work, including iconic paintings like Sunflowers, state-of-the-art technology is used to explore Van Gogh's paintings in a kaleidoscope of colour set to an evocative classical score. Aromas of Provence give visitors the sensation of the artist's work as if it was living and breathing.

This inaugural event will also mark the completion of a major project to restore and protect Brighton Dome’s Grade I and II listed Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre.

Don't miss out on this unique, multi-sensory experience, which has already mesmerised over 8 million attendees around the world.
