Fan Fest and the London Film Museum have teamed up to bring us Fan Fest - The Ultimate Spy And Sci-fi Event. Although this is not an official Bond event but looking at the programme it promises to be the biggest and best Bond related event this year, as well as a must visit for film fans.

Fan Festival is proud to present their first collectors convention and signing event at the London Film Museum in County Hall.

Fan Fest events include:
- An exhibition Of Original Props And Costumes
- Spy School For Jr. Spies

- Speed Boat Rides On The Thames
- Biggest Signing Of Bond And Sci Fi Actors & Actresses
- QA Sessions with the stars
- An exclusive lifetime achievement award ceremony hosted by Cinema Retro Magazine for Sir Christopher Lee (Separate tickets for this are available)

The weekend of the 24th and 25th April 2010 will be packed with opportunities to meet some of your favourite actors and actresses from the movie industry. Stars of the British film industry will be on hand for signings among the collector’s tables and exhibition pieces on display.

Exhibition pieces on display will include:
Little Nellie – The autogyro from You Only Live Twice.

If you didn't see my previous Bond 23 catchup post, this is an excerpt regarding Nellie.

"Whilst chatting to the London Film Museum team (@ldnfilmmuseum) it was mentioned that Little Nellie (James Bond's Gyroscope from You Only Live Twice) had arrived for Fan Fest and was in the building. No need to mention that my anticipation level for Fan Fest shot up. With the lineup they are programming Fan Fest may be the best film event this year."
