On Saturday, Banbury Museum will be unveiling The Sensory Zone, its latest exhibition featuring giant multi-sensory sculptures of international artist Jan Niedojadlo.

In 2009 an exhibition of Jan’s pods made headlines and now, by popular demand, he’s back with new ‘pods’ and even a couple of podlets.

Visitors are encouraged in this exhibition to enter and explore the soft sculptures from the inside out, experiencing not just the sights but the sounds, textures and smells within.

In Banbury Museum’s temperature-controlled exhibition, the pods will be a special place to chill out whatever the weather.

The exhibition has been supported by Banbury Charities and will run from 18 July to 12 September, with tickets costing £1. The museum opens Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm.
