ERDF White

Opening July 2021, the Market Hall is a £7.6 million digital space situated in the heart of Devonport, Plymouth, UK

A world-class space for digital innovation and learning. State-of-the-art immersive dome. Flexible co-working and inspiring workspaces. Large meeting rooms and event spaces as well as a cafe/bar. A space to work, learn, meet, eat, create... and have fun!

Home to an awe-inspiring 15m immersive dome - the first of its kind in Europe - the Market Hall offers experiences at the cutting edge of immersive tech.

Open to everyone, and with a wide range of events and experiences for all the family, the dome invites you to explore immersive realities without the need for a VR headset. The Market hall will also offer educational immersive experiences and workshops for all ages and abilities.

Why is an immersive space important to Plymouth?

Alongside mind-blowing immersive experiences, the Market Hall will also provide inspiring co-work space for all kinds of creative, digital and immersive businesses; the heart of the region's emerging immersive tech 'cluster'. 

The flexible spaces at the Market Hall will be the perfect spot for working, making, meeting and learning and, with the addition of a cafe/bar area, will cater for your every need from a healthy break with a barista coffee, to a delicious lunch with friends or colleagues. You'll even be able to grab a glass of wine and enjoy an immersive dome experience after your day in our workspace.
