A Norwich pub was thrusted into the future as it hosted a virtual reality night to raise funds for a new mural.
The Berstrete Gates, Ber Street, offered punters the opportunity to step into the virtual world at just £3 a go.
With many not experiencing the technology before the night was able to raise £102 towards restoring John Moray Smith mural on the side of the pub.
Organiser Lynn Loader said: 'It isn't very much money because it was our first try at something like that and we didn't advertise it but we will certainly have another try and make it a bigger event.'
So far the pub has been able to raise more than £2,000 towards its goal of £5,000.
