The Brewery Shopping Centre has launched an augmented reality app which bring murals of animals to life.

Overlaid sensory information has been interwoven with artworks at the centre to create an immersive experience.

To celebrate the launch of the app the Brewery invited families to a live animal show from a wildlife expert on Saturday, November 16.

Tom Stobbart, centre manager, said: "With so much interest generated from the Falcon, we wanted to give the people of Romford more artwork to admire, so with the addition of eight murals in July 2019 dotted around the centre and now adding this modern twist, with a specially designed augmented reality app - we will give people the chance to get more involved."
