HAVE yourself a licence to thrill with a James Bond fun day at Bletchley Park, this Bank Holiday Monday.

The family-friendly day has a host of special events planned including a stunning display of Aston Martins, courtesy of the Aston Martin Owners' Club.

There's also a chance to see the Vanquish model used in Die Another Day, as well as Little Nellie 2, the gyrocopter used in many of the James Bond films.

Action junkies can enjoy a breath-taking descent into the grounds from the RAF Falling Rocks parachute display team and a special flypast by a wartime Dakota, thanks to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, in tribute to 100 years since the birth of Ian Fleming.

Youngsters can also learn more about the world of espionage with a host of spy workshops.

The event rounds off with a special talk from author Michael Smith (see above), explaining the wartime links between Ian Fleming, Bletchley Park and MI6.

The family fun day takes place on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25, 10.30am to 5pm. For more details: www.bletchleypark.org.uk
