May The Toys Be With You is now on (free to visit) at The Willis Museum in Basingstoke. Lots of lovely vintage Star Wars, and do pop in if you're in the locality!

Although I've seen this a couple of times now at previous locations, I'll be visiting again... planning on popping in on Saturday 17th Feb
I've even pencilled in a local running event beforehand to make it a full morning :D

Hoping the next Farthest From is on before this finishes so I can call in on the way down.

If this is the same one as the Torquay one last year, then it's well worth a visit. Loads of vintage. :)

Luckily I live and work in Basingstoke so popped in during my lunch hour for a quick browse round and is an awesome collection. Will definitely be popping back soon for a more detailed viewing.

Popped in to see this today. An excellent display of vintage memorabilia. Matt you have some lovely pieces and your quad collection is second to none!

I was wondering if you wanted to display 'guest' pieces for the different areas that you're visiting. Would love to see one of my pieces on display :lol:

The 'Top of Town' car parks are your best bet unless you want to combine with a shopping trip and then use the Festival Place car park.

If you just want the exhibition then follow signs to Top of Town parking and head for the Castons Car Park. It's free for an hour if you can find a space. There's a bigger car park opposite Castons called the Southern Road car park if you can't get in to Castons.

From Castons head towards MacDonalds down an alley and the Willis Museum is on the other side of the square. If you go on a Saturday then you just need to go round the Market Stalls.
