The event will take guests on a journey which aims to bring to life the real experiences of children affected by conflict and their search for safety.

It will be sharing stories from just some of the 30 million children around the world who have been forced to leave their homes due to conflict and violence. Using the latest binaural 3D audio technology, the experience promises to take guests on a journey through a series of emotional settings.

Taking place in a secret central London location on 17 and 18 May, the experience will run across multiple time slots over the two days, lasting approximately 45 minutes.

Ellie McLeod, head of special events at Save the Children, told Event: "Forced to Flee will give a voice to children who have been affected by conflict across the world. Using the latest audio technology, we will take our supporters on a unique immersive journey to learn more about our work to help them."

The charity has worked with agency PD3 to create the event.
