When the Daleks came to town

Open Centre MemoriesPosted by Stephen Butt Sun, October 02, 2016 17:02:01
The Radio Leicester Open Centre was a great but shortlived idea which became a victim of the BBC's financial cutbacks in 2007. However, in the two brief years of its life, the project brought much enjoyment, life and colour to the station, as this 'visit' by some of Dr Who's most familiar foes most certainly demonstrated.

Over 600 visitors came through the doors of 9 St Nicholas Place in just three days, many wanting to have their photograph taken next to a Dalek or Cyberman. The exhibition also featured on East Midlands Today.
