Out of This World festival returns to Sheffield city centre
Sci-fi and Halloween festival Out of This World will take over Sheffield city centre on 28 October.
The festival, now in its fifth year, promises a load of strange, spooky, stupendous and supernatural events including live music, fairground rides and a giant dancing lobster – now we’re talkin’.
Councillor Mary Lea, cabinet member for culture, parks and leisure at Sheffield city council said: “Out of this World is a really unique festival providing the very best attractions in the world of sci-fi, magic and Halloween and has become a firm favourite within the comic-con community. There aren’t many events of this scale that are free to attend and our city centre provides the perfect location for this magical transformation. The event, which attracts many thousands of people each year, is suitable for people of all ages and transports the whole family to a fun-filled day out.”
The sci-fi, comic, gaming and fantasy zone will be spread across the Winter Gardens, Town Hall, Tudor Square, Millennium Square while the Peace Gardens will be home to arcade and board games, comic book artists and displays. Magicians and illusionists will be on display in Town Hall Square and the Moor will be hosting a huge Halloween zone with festival organisers promising lots of “mini ghosts and ghouls”.
