Malika Andress, Communications Manager at the National Space Centre:
Daleks have become part of modern culture and we have all grown up with them. I think this event will be the perfect time for everybody to come out from behind the sofa and enjoy a family day out that will dispel all those memories of fear.
The event will also see appearances by guests from Doctor Who; Ruaru Mears (various monsters) will be there on the Saturday, Nina De Cosimo (Blanche in Victory Of The Daleks) and Sonila Vjeshta (Vampire girl in The Vampires of Venice) on the Sunday. More guests are expected and will be announced nearer the date. The Hyde Fundraisers will also be in attendance, who will be hosting a sculpting demonstration as well as bringing a range of adversaries to the proceedings!
