Aliens invade Northumberland

Dalek at Woodhorn Museum July 15 9

I went to the Woodhorn Museum in Ashington, Northumberland, on Sunday. The Museum was hosting an invasion of alien characters from film and tv. I was able to meet up with daleks, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and Klingons. Good fun and lots of childhood memories.

Woodhorn Museum July 15 2

Woodhorn is a mining museum so we popped in to look at the history of coal mining in the Northumberland area. Visitors start in the late Victorian period and pass through to the late twentieth century when the mining industry had closed down. Quite a useful place to visit for those interested in social history.

Georgian Fair at Beamish Museum



A bit of video catch up. I filmed this at the end of May at Beamish Museum where a Georgian fair was being held. Watch out for ferrets, ponies, clog making, Punch and Judy and a zorse  a cross between a zebra and a horse.

Britannia Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool



I filmed this back in March 2015 but have only got round to editing the video now. The Britannia Adelphi Hotel is next to Liverpool Lime Street Station, a useful location as I was travelling by train. The hotel was fine for the weekend though it is a bit jaded. Comfortable though as you will see the room was a bit crowded.
