GBNews published this video item, entitled “Money Talks, Episode 56: Andy Scanlon, Co-Founder & CEO of VR Entertainment Group” – below is their description.

Welcome to Money Talks – a series of interviews with Liam Halligan, Economics and Business Editor of GB News.

In this episode, Liam talks to Andy Scanlon, the UK franchisee of Sandbox VR, one of the world’s leading location-based virtual reality companies.

Sandbox VR provides fully immersive gaming experiences, in physical city-centre locations, involving teams of players. It has its own unique titles such as Amber Sky 2088 and Deadwood Mansion, which are all designed in-house.

While working as an investment analyst in Singapore, Andy Scanlon visited a Sandbox VR venue. He was so impressed he contacted the Hong-Kong based owner – and was granted distribution rights across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

Having launched the first Sandbox VR venue in London in July 2022, Scanlon is planning further locations in Manchester, Birmingham and Dublin over the coming months.

In This Story: Ireland

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.

Ireland, also known as the Republic of Ireland, is a country in north-western Europe occupying 26 of 32 counties of the island of Ireland.

The state was created as the Irish Free State in 1922 as a result of the Anglo-Irish Treaty. Since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, the Irish government and Northern Ireland Executive have co-operated on a number of policy areas under the North/South Ministerial Council created by the Agreement.
