Revellers at Sheffield’s new Halloween event are being urged to don their best fancy dress costumes.

Comic book heroes and villains will be wandering the city centre streets in the Out of This World festival on Saturday and Sunday, November 1 and 2.

It will be divided into three zones on the themes of magic, sci-fi and horror.

One of the organisers of the sci-fi zone around the Winter Gardens is Ash Stones, who runs the Zone Out gaming store in Doncaster.

The 24-year-old said: “With the sci-fi part of Out of This World, we are trying to bring the wonder and excitement of seeing favourite characters come to life.

“We have a great selection of costumers, from Iron Man to Spiderman, and encourage as many people as possible to come in costume and join the fun. We will have a selection of traders, bringing everything from comic books and figures to American sweets so all geeky needs will be fulfilled.

“We will also have a selection of movie vehicles on display that people can browse and take pictures with.”

The event will run during the daytime.
