It's Doncaster town centre - but not as you know it.

Thursday, 28th July 2016, 5:00 am

Fairytale princesses, stormtroopers, life-sized Transformers vehicles and even KITT from Knight Rider will take over the town this September when the Doncaster Super Sci-fi Festival arrives.

The festival will be held at the Corn Exchange, Doncaster Market Square, Baxter Gate and Clock Corner, between 10am and 6pm on September 24.

The free family fun day will feature stalls, cars and cosplayers - from Anna and Elsa of Frozen to comic book heroes and villains - a Monsters University display, a green screen cosplay shoot and a zombie shooting range.

Cabinet member for Culture, Coun Bill Mordue, said: “Events like this bring much-loved characters to life and it will transform the town centre for the day into a sci-fi and Disney style wonderland.”
