An unmissable evening where guests could get up close and personal with many of the iconic 007 film props and memorabilia in the pre-sale exhibition, and experience a full line-up including a panel discussion with Bond experts including Meg Simmonds and Chris Corbould, and a film screening. The evening was presented by David Walliams.
