The Barbican to hold James Bond exhibition

In celebration of a half-century of James Bond, the Barbican in London is holding an exhibition of the various sets, cars and technology used in the films.

Exciting news, for those who really love their James Bond, and interesting for anyone else. Being able to view a collection of fifty years of set, car and prop design for arguably the most famous spy in cinema history sounds like a great experience. Even now, we’re talking about getting the TFR team over to the Barbican when it opens.

At £12 a ticket, it’s a reasonable day out, and for those who live in London, a real gem of an explorative learning experience in their back yard. The exhibition’s formal name is “Designing 007: 50 Years of Bond Style” and stylish the exhibition will most likely be, featuring some of the most popular luxury vehicles in history and a wide array of Bond’s gadgetry, provided for him by the MI6 tech team in the films, led by tech whiz Q and later R.

The exhibition runs between 6 July – 5 September 2012. You can find the site here, a lovely gallery here, and booking opens tomorrow. I’ll take my tickets shaken, not stirred.
