The Donald Campbell Across The Lake Display at Lakeland Motor Museum in Backbarrow near Ulverston will pay tribute to record-breaker Donald Campbell on the 50th anniversary of his death on Coniston Water.

A special display featuring behind-the-scenes photos from Across the Lake, the 1988 film starring Anthony Hopkins as Campbell, will be exhibited between January 4th and 7th 2017. It is hoped that Gina Campbell, the legendary Bluebird driver's daughter, will visit the museum to view the display on its last day, along with some of the film's supporting cast.

The Across the Lake display has been created by the Speed Record Club. The Lakeland Motor Museum is home to a full-size replica of the 1967 jet hydroplane Bluebird K7, which was used in the Anthony Hopkins film.
