Doctor Who: The Runaway is due to visit Kingsfold Library, Longridge Library and Leyland Library.

The VR experience lets you step inside and fly a Tardis and save the universe from a dangerous creature called Volta.

Cabinet member for community and culture services at Lancashire County Council county councillor Peter Buckley said: “This virtual reality project demonstrates the enormous potential that virtual reality has for creating new kinds of experiences that can be enjoyed by many people.

“I’m sure that Fans of Doctor Who especially will love this interactive experience.”

You need to be over 13-years-of-age to take part and each session lasts 15 minutes.

It’s free to have a go but you need to book a place on the county council website.
