Show’s out of this world

A TRULY out-of-this-world experience awaits in the up-coming exhibition at the award-winning Woodhorn Museum and Northumberland Archives.

Costumes, props and even robots from TV shows and film blockbusters have been brought together for Invasion, a thrilling display which opens at the Ashington-based attraction on Saturday.

Featuring in the exhibition will be costumes from Star Trek: Enterprise, Andromeda, Red Dwarf, Lost in Space and The Chronicles of Riddick, as well as aliens from the likes of Star Wars, The X-Files and Doctor Who.

And no sci-fi showcase would be complete without a range of robots, with machines from Red Planet Robot, Robocop and ABC, among others.

Organisers are expecting the exhibition to be a big hit with visitors.

Woodhorn’s exhibition officer Liz Ritson said: “People have flocked to see this show when it has been at other venues and we know that here in the North East we enjoy our sci-fi too.

“We have transformed our gallery space so it provides the perfect atmosphere and backdrop for this exhibition.

“It really does promise to be a super show whether you are a real fan or just enjoy a little escapism.”

The exhibition runs until September 3.

Admission is £3.95 adults, £3.50 concessions, £2.95 children and £12.50 for a family ticket (2+2).
