Star Trek: The Exhibition is coming to Blackpool from Thursday 30th June 2016 it has been announced.
To coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: The Exhibition will take up residence on the Golden Mile. It will feature original props, costumes and scripts that have never previously been seen in Europe – many from private collectors, as well as the opportunity to step aboard a spectacular recreation of the iconic bridge from The Original Series.
The exhibition has been designed by stage designer Andrew Edwards and will be launched with a new Augmented Reality app that allows visitors to appear transported. From Friday 2nd September, Blackpool’s Illuminations will showcase a new light feature on the Golden Mile celebrating Star Trek, which will be seen from many miles into space.
Promoter Paul Gregg of Apollo Resorts Blackpool Ltd said: “After many months of negotiation, Apollo is delighted to bring a unique concept to Blackpool. This is the first time a major holiday destination anywhere in the world has celebrated a movie franchise or entertainment brand enjoying a 50 year history. Star Trek will meet all the expectations of a Blackpool visitor with an exclusive exhibition which boasts many never seen before items. A section of the world-famous illuminations will feature the much-loved captains of Star Trek. More exciting activity within the resort is yet to be announced.”
