A Voyage in Space and Time brings Doctor Who terrors to St Albans Cathedral for Hallowe’en
Presented by Blogtor Who’s own Frank Danes, Doctor Who – A Voyage in Space and Time is a ninety minute free event at St. Albans Cathedral at 2pm on Hallowe’en itself, October 31st. Doctor Who – A Voyage in Space and Time will take you on an interactive journey about all things Doctor Who – from screen history, the battle between good and evil and monsters made of bubble wrap! As part of this special afternoon, you can also meet and take photos with some of the series most iconic characters, including real-life Daleks.
The event ties in with Frank’s book, Six Decades of Adventure in Space and Time – A Social, Cultural and Screen History of Doctor Who. When Frank delivered a similar talk at Ely Cathedral in May, as part of their Science Festival, 450 local Whovians turned up – as well as clockwork robots, Daleks, Cybermen and gas mask zombies. The event will also include quizzes and prizes. Meanwhile, Frank’s book will be on sale at the event at the reduced price of £10 (RRP £15.95).
Doctor Who – A Voyage in Space and Time is just one strand of Space Voyage – a whole week of events at St. Albans. Before the Doctor Who talk, those with younger children (3-11) can take part in Family Discovery Morning – Space: The Final Frontier at 11am. Another highlight of the week is on Monday, the 28th when the spectacular Space Voyage light show transforms the ceiling of St. Albans, Hogwarts style, into a breath taking vision of the night sky and the universe beyond.
Further details are available on the Cathedral’s website
