The Great War Immersive Experience
4th August 2024-4th August 1914
On the 4th of August 1914, Great Britain declared War against Germany.
Join us at the Butchers Dog (Driffield’s premier real ale pub) to mark this iconic anniversary to commemorate 110 years since the Great War began.
Sergeant Parsons has traveled back in time from 1917 to 2024 to lead you on an interactive, informative, and immersive experience.
He will begin by telling the story of the lead-up to the conflict and the declaration of War, the early opening phases of the fighting, and the trench deadlock that ensued.
Join him on a 45-minute virtual reality journey of the trenches in the British Sector of the Western Front. You will experience, dangers and life on the front line, before going over the top and into action.
All this from the safety and comfort of the Butchers Dog in Driffield!
