‘Doctor Who’ star visits The Collection Museum for truly out of this world evening

Sophie Alred, who played the Doctor’s companion in the hit TV series Doctor Who, will be visiting the Collection museum in Lincoln on Friday 18th March.

Sophie has worked extensively in children’s television as a presenter and voice artist. She played the seventh Doctor’s companion, Ace, in the ‘Doctor Who’ series during the late 1980s, becoming the final companion of the series’ first run.

At the event, Sophie will be sharing insights into her fascinating career. This will also be a unique opportunity for visitors to have their photograph taken with Sophie in front of the ‘Gaia’ installation, with time for autographs too.

The event begins at 6pm, with the talk beginning at 7pm. The Muse Coffee Bar will be open during the evening for refreshments.

Paul Mason, visitor experience manager at The Collection Museum, said:“We’ve developed a full programme of events around the ‘Gaia’ exhibition to help visitors really make the most out of this amazing installation. The huge 6m Earth provides a perfect backdrop for Sophie to talk about her fictional travels through space and time!”

Brainchild of artist Luke Jerram, ‘Gaia’ – which enjoyed a bumper opening weekend at The Collection with over 1,500 visitors – is a scale model of our planet that allows visitors to gaze upon the world as if from space.

‘Gaia’ is on display at The Collection Museum until Sunday 29 May 2022.
