A thrilling art show heading to Glasgow which gives visitors a dream-like interactive deep dive into the world of Vincent van Gogh is set to have its run extended.

Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience was recently announced for Glasgow’s Scottish Event Campus (SEC) where it will open this July.

It was due to enjoy a 25-date stay at the venue but demand for tickets has proved so high that producers Annerin Productions and Paquin Entertainment Group have made the decision to extend its run for an additional three weeks - giving even more fans to enjoy this epic experience.

It means the unmissable experience will now be open to visitors daily until Bank Holiday Monday, August 26.

Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is described as an entrancing celebration of the life and work of the celebrated post-Impressionist Dutch painter.

The exhibit combines more than 300 of his paintings with cutting-edge technology and a specially curated musical soundtrack to tell the story of his life through 40,000sq ft of the exhibition's space.

The firm behind it say Van Gogh’s works are rendered into three-dimensional, fully immersive scenes that swirl and flow with exhilarating colour and movement.

Visitors are taken on a journey through the artist’s world from darkness to light, enhanced by his own dreams, thoughts and words set to a stirring symphonic score in this sensational narrative experience which appeals to a whole new generation of art enthusiasts and Van Gogh fans alike.

Beginning in the 'Introduction Hall', visitors connect with Vincent van Gogh through personal letters he wrote to his brother, and greatest supporter, Theo.

Visitors then move into the heart of the exhibition – the Immersive Room – where Van Gogh’s paintings are freed from their frames to dominate the space and fully immerse the audience in the incredible detail of his work, awakening their imagination in a playful and dreamlike way as they are enveloped in colourful flowers, cafés and stunning landscapes, shifting and swirling across the projection-swathed walls and floor.

Along with timed entry tickets, visitors also have a chance to take part in special Saturday morning yoga sessions inside the exhibition on July, 13, 20 and 27 and August, 3, 10, 17 and 24.

Meanwhile, VIP Experience tickets include selected Beyond Van Gogh merchandise along with flexible arrival times and fast-track entry.

UK Business Development at Annerin Productions, Anna Parry, said today: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing response since we announced Beyond Van Gogh’s Scottish premiere, and so we’re absolutely delighted to be able to extend its run by an extra three weeks to the August Bank Holiday weekend.

“The support we’ve had from the team at the Scottish Event Campus has been brilliant, and I can guarantee everyone who comes to see Beyond Van Gogh will have an unforgettable experience.”

The extra tickets can be booked via www.sec.co.uk.
