Last week, I was down at the Phoenix and had a look at the space we'll be using. We're going to be in the Creative Tech Studio (I know!) which, as well as the usual tables and chairs and whiteboard, houses some amazing Virtual Reality equipment. Let me take you on a little tour ...
Here's the studio. On the work surface on the right and on the tripod, middle back, you can see the sensors that are used in creating a virtual reality experience. On the left you just catch the edge of the roundtable and chairs. That's Chris with his back to us - Chris manages the Digital Art Gallery.
I was thrilled with this: the first time I'd seen a 3D printer. It looked like Meccano, I thought. I love the way the scissors and tape have been left there.
I asked about this: "It's stuff".
Just along from the Studio is the Courtyard. This housed a VR installation during half-term - over a thousand people tried it out. If the weather is fine, we can use this as extra breakout space. If the weather is fine, we might want to be here anyway :)
The Phoenix has its own onsite cafe bar ...
... and a varied menu with specials ...
... and lots more room for smaller breakout conversations.
The cafe courtyard. Plenty of space for talking and thinking.
The Phoenix is a short walk from the Rail Station (shortest journey time from London 62 minutes; Nottingham 25 minutes; Sheffield & Birmingham 50 minutes and Leeds 2 hours). The Premier Inn is halfway between the station and the Phoenix.
