Check out this super hands-on creation from artist Marvin Gaye Chetwnyd!

The Idol is a ginormous 21,000 square metre soft play centre and a permanent installation in Abbey Leisure Centre.

The two-storey robotic figure is packed with chambers, ramps and two giant’s eyes for kids to peer out of!

Its monochrome walls and floors will be printed with collage works featuring everything from Egyptian statues to sci-fi cyborgs. Each session lasts a maximum of two hours.
