Spectacular Chronicles of Narnia Weekend at the Maritime Museum

28 — 30 August 2010

Prepare to step into a world of fantasy and magic over the August Bank Holiday as the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, in Falmouth plays host to a spectacular Chronicles of Narnia weekend.

From 28-30 August, visitors will have the chance to climb aboard the Dawn Treader from the much loved Chronicles of Narnia stories. The ship is in fact the Matthew from Bristol, which will be transformed into the Dawn Treader, with its spectacular dragon's head and tail. The ship is being used to promote the forth coming Hollywood blockbuster The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and the Maritime Museum is the only place on the south coast where the public will have the chance to climb on board.

Visitors can also make their own Reepicheep finger puppets, complete with golden earring; follow the trail around the Museum to find the hidden Narnian characters; and get a sneak-peek of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie before its release in December. Plus all children who dress-up as their favourite Narnian character will be entered into a fantastic prize draw for tickets to see the movie, courtesy of the Phoenix Cinema in Falmouth.

The Chronicles of Narnia weekend, at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, runs from Saturday 28 August to Monday 30 August. For more information on opening times and admission prices visit www.nmmc.co.uk or call 01326 313388.

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader opens in 3D and 2D in cinemas nationwide 10 December.
