William Wilberforce MP in virtual reality

William Wilberforce, the MP who campaigned against slavery in the 18th and 19th Century , has been brought back to life in virtual reality

Wilberforce's opposition led to the passing of the Slave Trade Act which ended Britain's involvement in the transatlantic slave trade.

A 3D figure of the Hull-born abolitionist will appear in four films across the city.
