The Daleks are coming!


Science fiction fans won’t want to miss a special chance to see some of the galaxy’s most terrifying life-forms at a special Wirral Libraries event later this month.

On Saturday 21st May, Wallasey Central Library welcomes several life-sized, mobile, replica Daleks to coincide with a screening of a sci-fi movie classic. The Daleks were created by local model makers Dave Owen and Joe Nagle.

1966’s Daleks – Invasion Earth 2150 AD will be screened in the library, after a talk about the history and development of the Daleks since their introduction to Dr Who in 1963. The sequel to Dr. Who and the Daleks, the film stars Peter Cushing in his return to the role of the world’s most famous time traveller, and co-stars Bernard Cribbins and Andrew Keir.

The talk takes place between 10.00am and 12.30pm, with the film screening starting at 2.30pm. The event is organised by the Friends of Wallasey Central Library and Wirral Council’s Libraries service.

The day of events will also include an exhibition on the menacing mutants and a showing of Dalekmania, the definitive story of the Daleks. There will also be a chance to have your photograph taken with a Dalek, a ‘Draw a Dalek’ competition, raffle and refreshments.
