Forget the Ben Stiller film, here’s your opportunity to enjoy your own Night at the Museum at Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre.

For the first time ever, the centre, located in Tattershall Thorpe, will open its doors for a special after hours presentation on Saturday May 17.

Thorpe Camp will be opening its doors from 7.30pm for an illustrated lecture by aviation historian and author Mike Hodgson entitled Operation Chastise, the story of the Dams Raid.

Following the lecture the visitor centre will be open from 8.30pm until 10.30pm for a unique night-time viewing, with light refreshments also available.

Tickets for the event cost £5 and can be bought by calling 01526 342249 or visiting www.thorpecamp.org

Museums at Night is a national arts and culture project which will see more than 400 venues open their doors after hours this May, but Thorpe Camp is the only museum in Lincolnshire taking part.

Thorpe Camp tells the story of RAF Woodhall Spa during the Second World War.
