On Tuesday, 19th March, The Duke of Gloucester stepped into Market Hall located in Devonport, Plymouth, where he was shown the incredible transformation of this Victorian building from, as the name suggests, a marketplace, to a venue of co-working spaces, meeting rooms and event areas. His Royal Highness was shown photos of the building’s renovation, and discussed its history with members of the team.


The Market Hall is now home to ‘Real Immersive’, which is a part of the ‘Real Ideas’ group. The Duke of Gloucester was shown the remarkable Real Immersive dome by CEO Lindsey Hall, which is a 360-degree visual experience, currently the only one in Europe.




Upon entrance, The Lord Lieutenant of Devon introduced His Royal Highness to The High Sheriff of Devon, The Right Reverend Nicholas McKinnell and Mrs Jan McKinnell, in one of his last roles as High Sheriff of Devon. He was also introduced to the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Plymouth, Councillor Mark Shayer and Mrs Samantha Shayer.
