The UK's National Space Centre in Leicester is holding a special charity event over the weekend 19th-20th March to celebrate British Science Fiction.

Guests at the event include Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet) and Gareth Thomas (Blake's Seven), plus special effects duo Matt Irvine and Mike Tucker will be presenting talks and displays on their careers at the BBC Visual Effects Department, which of course covers Doctor Who. The press release also promises:
An amazing display of original props and costumes will be guarded over by an invasion force of Daleks, who are out in force to raise money for Children in Need… and you thought they had no heart!

Never fear though as the original K9 will be joining Doctor Who, Torchwood, Spooks and Primeval writer James Moran, for some cozy chats on writing science fiction.
Many other guests and activities are expected to take place over the course of the weekend - you can find full details via the National Space Centre.
