CROWDS at the Tour de Yorkshire will get a glimpse into Barnsley’s future when a ground-breaking virtual reality tour of the £130m Glass Works development comes to the town centre on May 4.

IBI Group, the architect for The Glass Works, will use state-of-the-art VR to showcase the development to the people of Barnsley, giving them a sneak preview of the completed town centre and allowing them to explore the surroundings.

Seamus Lennon, Studio Director at IBI Group, said: "IBI Group is delighted to be able to bring the Virtual Barnsley Experience in time for the Tour de Yorkshire celebrations. It's an amazing opportunity to show them their striking new town centre first hand."

The event will take place in the former Shop Mobility store at the Civic Hall on Eldon Street.
