Mark, Sarah, her husband Andy and I met up in town for the event. Sarah had been as a child and remember crying at the Dalek they had on display. Andy and I had never been and Mark and I attended last year when they showcased their Marvel exhibit and new 4D movie.
The evening was great fun. Once all the day visitors had left, the staff checked and tidied the exhibition and let the invited lucky few in. And by lucky few, I mean just that. There were maybe 100 of us - I am bad with numbers - so it was really empty and everyone got to get up close and personal with superheroes, A list stars, monsters and famous people.
Here are some photos we took on the night.

The staff were all lovely and encouraging us to step right up to the exhibits to have our photos taken or to take photos of them. They looked like they were having as much fun as we were. We were plied with drinks and canapés and cake goodness and it was lovely and fun. I think going to Tussauds is seeing how much fun other people get to have too - especially the kids.
It was a lovely treat, and one that Team MFB thoroughly enjoyed!
