If the world of sci-fi holds a special place in your heart, and the possibility of maybe one day standing next to an alien makes it pump that little bit harder, then the new big exhibition at Woodhorn is just the thing for you.
A truly out-of-this-world experience is guaranteed for all visitors to INVASION which opened at the museum on 11 February. Costumes, props and even robots from favourite TV and sci-fi film blockbusters have been brought together for this thrilling show. Unearthly beings will shock and amaze you, monsters mesmerise, space suits scintillate and robots rivet you to the spot.
Featuring in the exhibition are costumes from Star Trek: Enterprise, Andromeda, Red Dwarf, Lost in Space and The Chronicles of Riddick. There are aliens from Star Wars, X files, Doctor Who and of course Alien itself. And no sci-fi exhibition would be complete without a range of robots; check out the machines from Red Planet Robot, Robocop and ABC amongst others.
The exhibition is already a big hit with visitors. Woodhorn’s Exhibition Officer Liz Ritson says,
”People have flocked to see this show with over 5,000 visitors in the first few weeks. We have transformed our gallery space so it provides the perfect atmosphere and backdrop for this exhibition. It really is a super show whether you are a real fan or just enjoy a little escapism.”
The exhibition will run until 3 September.
