Dalek Invasion at Peak Village

Published: Tue Oct 21 2008

From 11.00am – 4.00pm, the words "exterminate, exterminate" will dominate as Derek the Dalek entertains shoppers and children at Peak Village in Rowsley, near Matlock.

Half of the proceeds of The Toys of Yesteryear Exhibition on 27 October will benefit Rowsley
C of E school. Also, to celebrate Derek the Dalek’s guest appearance at Peak Village, visitors to the Toys of Yesteryear Exhibition will be entered into a free prize draw for the chance to win a remote control Dalek.

Steve Fulfood who runs The Toys of Yesteryear Exhibition at Peak Village, says:
"Derek the Dalek never fails to delight children of all ages. It’s not every day you get to meet a TV star, and the children visiting us when there is a life-sized Dalek around are always really excited about meeting a Dr Who? ‘character’ in the flesh."

With many rare and unique exhibits of interest to the whole family at The Toys of Yesteryear Exhibition, you can take a trip down memory lane with the children and rediscover your own childhood in Number 20 Toytown – a traditional toyshop, preserved just as it was in the 1950s. Thousands of toys are on display dating from the last century - with dolls, teddies, cars, trucks, games, comics and annuals. Toys of Yesteryear is open Monday- Saturday 10.00am - 5.30pm and 10.30am - 5.00pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Peak Village is home to nearly 20 retailers including national names like Cotton Traders, Leading Labels, Ponden Mill, The Cook Shop and Mountain Warehouse. The outlet shopping centre attracts 750,000 visitors a year and offers visitors the opportunity to combine shopping with other local attractions.
