Daleks invading Aldridge Museum as we speak!


On now!

There’s currently a Dalek invasion happening at Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge where the wheeled Who-botherers will be entertaining visitors and scaring the staff all day today (Sunday 23rd August 2015) from 10:30am until late afternoon.

This looks set to be a wonderful event for Doctor Who fans and nostalgics alike; there are all manor of sic-fi themed things going on – Cosplay, monsters, music, memorabilia and of course, all those great vintage vehicles.

The museum, which is in Shenstone Drive, just off Northgate, opens from 10:30am and the event runs until late afternoon. It’s £8 entry for adults, £6 for kids and a family ticket is £25 (that’s 2 adults and up to 3 sprogs).

There are free bus services operating all day between the museum and a whole range of local areas, operated by museum vehicles – see the timetable below, just turn up and ride!


Just turn up and go.

There will also be a display of all types of road transport, with the whole site opened up so that visitors can also see what the volunteers get up to.
