Who Wars at the Heritage Motor Centre

Daleks and Storm troopers are to invade the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon on Sunday 21 February from 10am – 4pm. ‘Who Wars’ will see life size iconic characters from Dr Who and Star Wars roaming the museum in between the world’s largest historic collection of British cars. Fans will have the chance to meet their beloved screen characters including Darth Vader, Jabber the Hut, Scarecrow Men and the infamous Daleks.

Throughout the day Who Wars themed activities will take place in the Education room including the chance to make Star Wars mini figures, or build a Tardis. Characters from both legendary screen hits will battle it out in a Who Wars Question Time to test their 'galactic' knowledge. The Question Time will be MC’d by Who Wars very own Doctor, with the opportunity for members of the audience to ask their own questions. Visitors will also have the chance to buy official merchandise from specialist trade stands and have their photographs taken with the characters.

During half term week the family can enjoy a host of fun filled activities. On Thursday 18 February children can take part in special craft activities from 11am - 3pm.
