U.K-based exhibition will feature original props, costumes, scripts and more.
CBS Consumer Products has tapped the U.K. resort Blackpool to host “Star Trek: The Exhibition” on the resort’s Golden Mile.
The exhibition will take audiences through the 50-year history of “Star Trek” with original props, costumes and scripts that have never been seen in Europe. Attendees will also have the opportunity to step aboard a recreation of the bridge from the original series. Meanwhile on Sept. 2, the Illuminations light festival will showcase a new light feature celebrating the franchise.
Blackpool also plans to bring the display to life with a new augmented reality app that will allow visitors to appear to be transported.
“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,” says Paul Gregg, promoter, Apollo Resorts Blackpool. “’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 also feature the much-loved captains of ‘Star Trek.’”
“Star Trek: The Exhibition” will open at Blackpool’s Golden Mile on June 30.
