Out Of This World




Back for its fourth year, this free city centre event celebrates all things otherworldly and is for anyone who enjoys sci-fi, comic books, gaming, magic, illusion, Halloween and all things spooky.

Keep an eye out for the Tardis and Darleks, Lego displays and roaming Jurassic Park dinosuars, enjoy sci-fi, music and dance displays - and even meet some well-loved children’s TV characters too!

Magic Zone: Town Hall Square and the Town Hall
A programme of mystifying illusion and magic with some of the UK’s best magicians and illusionists will be in this zone. Magic that will astound you - from sleight of hand to the weird and wonderful! lOOK OUT FOR Ramona Gypsy Queen on The Ladder of Swords, Dr Diabolo, Sam The Scam and Professor Jon's with his amazing Flea Circus. See if you can learn a few tricks in the magic workshops, or maybe just try and work out how they are done.
