Guests will be greeted with a drinks reception and a welcome from George, then given the opportunity to explore the National Film & Sci-Fi Museum after dark.

This is the first in a series of 'Evening with' functions planned by the museum, which is sited in Secklow Gate West.

Displays range from Star Wars to Indiana Jones, James Bond to Ghostbusters, and Harry Potter to Marvel, and exhibits include Darth Vader’s screen used mask, James Bond’s Walther PPK gun, Indiana Jones’ whip, and Cyberman helmets from Doctor Who.

There is also a Pixel Bunker retro arcade where visitors can play a huge selection of original classic arcade machines

The National Film an SciFi Museum is open 10am until 5pm Tuesday to Sunday during school holidays, and Friday to Sunday during term time. More details are on the museum's website here.
