The city centre will be overtaken by all things strange, spooky, stupendous and supernatural this Sunday, when Out of This World returns to Sheffield.
Visitors are invited to step into a parallel universe for the festival as the the city centre is divided into three zones on the themes of sci-fi, magic and horror.
Favourites Magic Carpet Theatre will be back with more illusions and magic shows and workshops, The Moor will bring spooktacular fun for the little ones and, for the first time, the grandeur of the Town Hall will be taken over by sci-fi, gaming and comics. The Winter Garden and Peace Gardens will be home to a whole host of characters, plus music and dance entertainment, and Barkers Pool, Tudor Square and Fargate will provide all the fun of the fair.
Richard Eyre, head of city centre management, said: “With this event seeing is believing, it’s not your traditional comicon, it’s an all-out celebration of the wacky, weird and wonderful. People will be in awe of sci-fi characters, amazed by illusionists and even a little spooked in our horror zone.”
Free family-friendly activities will run from 10:30am to 5:30pm next Sunday - so start thinking about your costume now!
