To celebrate the Museum’s starring role in the 1985 film A View to a Kill.
What can visitors see and do at this event?
Aston Martin Cavalcade
Aston Martins from the AM Owners Club will be on show during the weekend with a cavalcade around the Museum site at 2.30pm each day.
Original Zorin Locomotive & Trucks
The scenes leading to the blowing up of May Day, played by Grace Jones in A View to a Kill, were filmed at the entrance of a quarry tunnel near the Museum’s ‘Brockham Station’, which appeared as Main Strike Mine in the film. The original Zorin Industries locomotive and trucks that featured in A View to a Kill will be running in and out of the ‘mine’ entrance over the weekend.
Derek Lyons, who was a stuntman and actor in several Bond films, including A View to a Kill, will be reminiscing about his experiences and signing photographs, together with other Bond experts.
Youngsters will also be entertained by a new Codebreaker Trail.
Cocktails & Live Performances
Enjoy cocktails and live music from 4pm each day: Vintage Candy, a Sussex based duo, will entertain visitors on Saturday and on Sunday Sarah Sussex Violinist will perform some exciting violin interpretations of Bond and other cinematic theme music.
New James Bond story boards near the ‘mine’ entrance will be unveiled at 11am on Saturday by Ian Dean, the first Director of Amberley Museum, who was present at the filming.
Amberley excerpts from A View to a Kill will be shown as well as archive footage of the filming at Amberley and a BBC interview with Roger Moore on the set at the Museum in 1985.
