Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style

It’s 50 years since James Bond seduced his first femme fatale and saved the world. This exhibition explores the processes behind his iconic image, including costumes, set and production design, cars, motion graphics, exotic locations, stunts and props.

A highlight will undoubtedly be the gadgets and weapons made for Bond and his assorted opponents by special effects experts.
