Chance to Bond with the stars.

STARS from James Bond films will be among a host of celebrities at a huge collectors' fair at the NEC this weekend.

George Lazenby, Richard Keil (who played the metal-mouthed villain Jaws) and seven Bond girls, including Britt Eckland, will take centre-stage at Memorabilia.

Eight Star Wars actors, including Dave Prowse who played Darth Vader, Kenny Baker who was robot R2D2, Peter Mayhew who was furry Chewbacca and Jeremy Bulloch who was Boba Fett, will also be among the famous faces.

The fair, which opens on Saturday and Sunday, features more than 1,000 stands selling sci-fi, film, cult TV, pop and comics. Up to 30,000 visitors and autograph hunters are expected to attend the event, which is now in its fifth year.

Top names from WWF wrestling and stars from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Blakes 7, Only Fools and Horses and Hammer Horror will also attend.

Organiser Henry Cook said: "The good thing is that even as the show has dramatically increased in size it still has a friendly and warm atmosphere.

"There is a sense of the event being a celebration of British popular culture, as much as a being a bustling buying and selling arena."

Tickets cost pounds 7 for adults and pounds 5 for children and are available from the box office on 0121 767 4555.
