Notorious Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett and TV icon Avon from Blake’s 7 are coming to Moyse’s Hall, in Bury St Edmunds, later this month.

On October 26, actors Jeremy Bulloch and Paul Darrow will be signing autographs at the launch of a week-long series of events as part of the museum’s annual exhibition.

This year’s theme focuses on the 50th anniversary of Dr Who, with Daleks, Cyberman, the Tardis and an appearance from the 10th Doctor on October 26 and 27.

Also, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Return of the Jedi, characters from the Star Wars universe will be making an appearance.

Then, on November 2, there will be a chance to meet Michael Troughton, who will be signing his new book about his father, Patrick, the second Doctor.

The museum exhibition displays science fiction costumes, props, toys and memorabilia, including some from Star Wars, Star Trek, Blake’s 7, Alien and Dr Who.

The week’s events will run from 10am to 5pm October 26 to November 3, with a costume competition and the chance for visitors to play Pot Luck Sci Fi - top trumps with a range of iconic characters.
