David Attenborough’s voice will be the centerpiece of the new BBC Earth Experience, a London attraction opening on March 30th at The Daikin Centre in Earl’s Court. Produced in collaboration with BBC Studios, Moon Eye Productions, and Live Nation, the experience will feature three breakout zones that allow audiences of all ages to interact with the natural world in a unique way. The 1608m2 demountable venue will house hundreds of multi-angle screens and interactive rooms that invite visitors to explore the extraordinary biodiversity of Earth’s seven unique continents.
One of the breakout zones, the Water Life room, will take visitors on a journey down to the ocean floor where they can interact with life below the waves. Another breakout zone, the Micro Life room, allows visitors to explore the wonders of planet Earth on a microscopic scale. Visitors can also immerse themselves in the spectacular drone footage on the Vista Stage.
After exploring the mesmerizing landscapes and endless oceans and meeting their extraordinary inhabitants, visitors will hear a special message from David Attenborough in the Earth Room, inspiring everyone to think about what they can do in their daily lives to protect the amazing planet.
Sustainability is at the heart of the BBC Earth Experience, with the building and its contents made of materials that can be recycled, reused, or repurposed. The production projectors use the latest LED energy-efficient technology, powered only by renewable energy, and the screens are made of cotton, which will be repurposed after use. The outdoor spaces focus on biodiversity with plants and insect houses that attract more than 40 different species to populate the gardens.
David Attenborough’s narration and the BBC Earth Experience’s commitment to sustainability and biodiversity make it a unique and exciting attraction for visitors of all ages.
