7:30pm Sunday 6th October 2013 in News
DOCTOR Who lookalikes and Daleks descended on the region at the weekend as part of a sci-fi exhibition.
The exhibition of some of Hollywood’s most famous film franchises were brought to life as more than 30 enthusiasts attended the Invasion exhibition at Kirkleatham Museum, near Redcar, on Saturday, dressed as their favourite sci-fi characters.
Costumes from Star Trek, aliens from Star Wars and robots from Robocop are on display at the exhibition itself.
Thornaby-based auctioneers Vectis brought along one of only two known 1978 Star Wars Jawa figures, which is expected to fetch more than £12,000 at auction.
Olwyn Peters, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, said: “We are thrilled to welcome these extremely passionate individuals to the exhibition.
“They put so much effort into their costumes and they look fantastic.
Entry to the exhibition, which runs until November 3, is £2 for adults and £1 for children, including a free second visit. Under-fives go free.
The museum is open 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Sunday, but last admission into the exhibition is 3.30pm.
Throughout the Invasion exhibition entry to the grounds and the rest of the museum, including the permanent Saxon Princess exhibition, remains free.
