David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef Dive at Limina VR


After a highly successful run at London’s Natural History Museum, David Attenborough’s VR experience comes to Bristol this summer, at the Limina Virtual Reality Theatre on Harbourside 

The new show at Limina features David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive and The Guardian’s critically acclaimed natural history experience, Songbird. It is brought to Bristol in partnership with Encounters Film Festival.

Audiences will be invited, via virtual reality, to dive beneath the waves with David Attenborough and explore together the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. In Songbird, they can travel back in time to a lush Hawaiian cloud forest and meet the long lost ʻōʻō bird and hear its mystical song. 

Shows will run throughout the day on both Saturday and Sundays until the end of August. Screenings are synchronised and happen in groups, like cinema or theatre, so audiences can come alone or with group sizes up to 12 people.


Audience members should allow 50 minutes for the entire VR theatre experience.

David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef Dive VR
Join David Attenborough as you dive through a living wonderland with over 3000 reef systems, forming one of the most important natural resources on Earth. Come face to face with the incredible diversity and abundance of the Great Barrier Reef, and learn how researchers are using certain species of corals to predict how the reef will react to environmental changes.
Produced by Alchemy VR with Atlantic Productions, Executive Producer Anthony Geffen 

The Guardian’s Songbird 
Experience  a lush cloud forest on the Hawaiian island of Kauai in 1984, retracing the steps of world renowned ornithologist Dr Jim Jacobi in search of the last known ʻōʻō, an iconic black bird with yellow leg feathers and a beautiful song. Songbird presents a rare opportunity to encounter this extinct species through ‘sonic fossil’ soundscapes and breathtaking painted landscapes.
