FANS of Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman can walk in the steps of the celebrity and see where he filmed Darkest Hour at Bicester Heritage.

The actors stint as Sir Winston Churchill saw him visit the former World War Two bomber station in Bicester for some of the filming.

Following the win for Best Actor at this year's Oscars, the team at Bicester Heritage have added a tour of the buildings featured in Darkest Hour to the Flywheel Festival line-up.

The newly-named Classic and Sports Car Show in association with Flywheel will let people roam to familiar big-screen buildings as part of the event on June 23 and 24.

Scenes filmed at Bicester Heritage include battle scenes across the parts of the airfield as well as one in which Mr Oldman, as Sir Winston Churchill, meets the French Premier and features one of the cavernous 1936 C Type hangars at Bicester Heritage.

The hangar used for filming will be open to the public to visit during the summer festival which celebrates all things classic cars, planes and military vehicles.

The film also used parts of the airfield for filming battle scenes. The hangar used for filming will be open to the public to visit on 23 and 24 June at the festival, which celebrates all things classic: cars, planes and military machines.

At the time Adam Richards, supervising location manager for Darkest Hour, said: "Filming at Bicester Heritage was a joy from beginning to end and all the staff were incredibly helpful and pro-active to the ever-demanding needs of a film crew.

"I am looking forward to returning soon on another project."

Mr White added that the attraction was 'in demand' as a film location and continues to be a desirable period back drop following appearances on big and little screens.

Also open for visitors during the festival will be the buildings used in the 2014 film The Imitation Game which starred Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

Both the former Power House and Parachute Store will be familiar to the eagle-eyed viewers.

Film fans will also be able to get up close to the Douglas C-47 Dakota plane, which has starred in movies including Spies Like Us, The Dirty Dozen, Quantum of Solace and George Clooney's The Monuments Men.

Together it forms just part of the Classic and Sports Car Show line-up which will bring together an array of vintage vehicles, plus demonstrations on the ground and in the air.

Returning for a third year will be the Oxfordshire Home Guard re-enactors group, and there will be vintage fairground rides, music performances and food stalls.
