Monet & Friends

Life, Light & Colour

Presented by Grande Experiences and Andrew Kay in association with BBC Studios and Alex Fane

What is Monet & Friends?

Monet and Friends – Life, Light & Colour is not an art exhibition in the traditional sense. It is an immersive multimedia art experience combining high-definition projections of Monet’s, and his impressionist peers’, paintings with digital surround sound.
Imagery and animations are projected at a scale that offers visitors the ability to see the details of the artist’s work like never before. More than 3,000 images transform each surface. However, there is no physical work by Claude Monet or other artists on display.



What is the best way to see the experience?

We encourage you to move around freely to view the experience from different perspectives, always mindful of other visitors in the venue. 

What is SENSORY4™?

Developed by Grande Experiences, SENSORY4™ is a unique technological system that combines multi-channel motion graphics, cinema quality surround sound and up to forty high-definition projectors to provide one of the most exciting multi-screen environments in the world.

Events Comments


The exhibition space in the Royal Hall of Industries provides a safe, contact-free environment. The experience is designed to be a personal journey of exploration, allowing visitors to self-distance. Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff. 


Masks and Temperature Checks 

Masks will be required by all guests aged 12+ prior to entry and throughout the experience. If you have forgotten your mask, a disposable mask will be available for purchase.

Physical Distancing 

Monet & Friends follows government regulations in regard to physical distancing. 

The Royal Hall of Industries allows for plenty of space to practice social distancing. As the event is ticketed, the organisers are able to control the number of people who can visit at any time. There will be floor markings and signage to help visitors maintain safe distances.
