Van Gogh Alive | Kensington Garden, London

 The world's most visited immersive multi-sensory experience is touring the UK, and I was lucky enough to attend the launch event in Kensington Gardens.

Van Gogh Alive is an art exhibition like no other; transporting you through Van Gogh's life. Take the journey through the Netherlands, Arles, Saint Rémy, and Auvers-sur-Oise, where he created many of his timeless masterpieces. 

Set to an evocative classical score, you can witness a thrilling display of over 3,000 inspirational images. 

From start to finish, you are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound, and fragrance as you wander around the exhibition and absorb it from every possible angle. Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life, giving visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining, and educational.

The exhibition lasts around 80 minutes. The event also includes a mesmerising sunflower room, a quick-draw activity area to try out your artistic skills and the chance for you to step inside one of Van Gogh's paintings with a life-size set-up of Van Gogh's bedroom. You can also enjoy live music from Classic FM and refreshments in Café Provençale.

The best part? You can support Global's Make Some NoiseGlobal’s Make Some Noise improves the lives of disadvantaged people by working with small charities across the UK. The charity believes everyone deserves to feel safe, feel well, feel included and feel prepared. That’s why they work across four key areas: providing shelter and safety, supporting physical and mental health, preventing isolation, and improving life skills. They’re keeping crucial services going, such as food banks, domestic violence, and mental health helplines, carer support, community projects, and employment programmes. They’re proud to be a voice for small charities.

When purchasing tickets for Van Gogh Alive you have the opportunity to donate to this wonderful charity.

This is a not-to-be-missed experience that I would highly recommend.
