Doctor Who Experience Plans Action Packed last Summer
- Doctor Who Experience to close on the 9th September 2017
- Tickets for the final months will be available from midday Friday 16th June
- Monster Events and Location Tours planned in conjunction with Series 10
- Special Cosplay Celebration in August
The Doctor Who Experience is to mark the attraction’s closure with a whole summer jam-packed with tours and activities. After a successful, five-year tenure in Cardiff, visitors are invited to join a number of special events before the venue closes its doors on 9th September.
The summer holidays mark the return of the Filming Location Walking Tours. This final season of tours, starting from the 8th July, are a 75 minute walk in and around Cardiff Bay and feature sites from Series 10 and memorable locations from previous series.
Series 10 content will also be added into the Experience, with the finished exhibition being unveiled on the 8th July. This will include props, costumes and sets from Series 10, that will join the Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie costumes which are already part of the exhibition.
Earlier this year we announced that the Yeti from The Web of Fear, during Patrick Troughton’s incarnation as the Doctor, was voted by fans as the Doctor Who monster they’d most like to see restored as part of the ongoing Restoration Project. So to celebrate, Model Unit expert, Mike Tucker will also be on hand on the 8th July to reveal the final, renovated monster in all its glory to visitors.
On 22nd July, the Experience will host its final Monster Event, with the Cybermen at its theme. The day will include workshops and question and answer sessions with monster-makers, Millennium FX; a chance for fans to be converted into Cybermen; as well as live Mondasian Cybermen roaming the Experience floor.
The day will be completed with a viewing of the final two-part episode, first screened on BBC One on 24th June & 1st July, screened in the Experience’s exhibition area.
Later in the holidays, on the 5th August, fans can look forward to the biggest Doctor Who Experience Cosplay Celebration yet. Fans will be invited and encouraged to visit dressed as their favourite Doctor Who character or monster.
Fans should keep an eye on www.doctorwhoexperience.com for news of additional events and features in the final weeks of the Experience. News of how we are planning further ways of taking Doctor Who directly to our audience, and how we are using the filming locations to continue the commercial presence of Doctor Who in Cardiff, will be communicated in due course.
