Fly into the future of Farnham with a free virtual reality experience

Virtual reality technology will enable people in Farnham to explore the potential future of the town centre by jet pack this Summer. The FREE immersive experience will be in various locations around Farnham from 16 August. This follows public exhibitions held in July by the Farnham Infrastructure Programme as part of the on-going consultation which proposes changes to Farnham town centre.

There will be four virtual reality sessions available. You can book a time in advance or turn up on the day.

  • Tuesday 16 August, 10am to 5pm – 18 Lion and Lamb Yard
  • Saturday 20 August, 10am to 5pm – 18 Lion and Lamb Yard
  • Sunday 21 August, 3pm to 5pm – Music in the Meadow, Gostrey Meadow
  • Tuesday 23 August, 10am to 5pm – Farnham Leisure Centre
  • Book your virtual reality experience online now by visiting: https://www.eventbrite.com/cc/jet-pack-into-the-future-of-farnham-978559

    The experience will see participants using the latest in virtual reality headset technology to fly around the town centre by jet pack. It will give an opportunity to explore and feedback on how Farnham could be transformed if current proposals are agreed.

    The proposed future town centre will come alive as jet-packers feel the vibrations, hear the sounds, look around the 360-degree views and fly through hoops to see the different options being proposed. Those not keen to fly can keep their feet firmly on the ground and use a joystick to travel around instead.

    The innovative experience aims to give everyone a chance to try virtual reality for free and discover what Farnham could look like in the future, but it also has a serious mission. The aim is to encourage more people of all ages to have the chance to input into and shape the future of the place they live, work and play.
