Saturday October 7th sees Hyde Market Hall hosting a number of attractions to celebrate Sci Fi Saturday in the town centre.

Tameside Markets, in partnership with Hyde Fundraisers, are providing a free ‘out of this world’ event for families and sci fi fans to enjoy. Key attractions located on the first floor of the Market Hall include a special display featuring sci fi props and models created by Chester model maker Kevin Davies. From a Space 1999 Eagle to Thunderbird 2 you’ll see an impressive collection of detailed miniature spacecraft from films and TV.

Also to being showcased will be the debut gallery display from graphic artist Elliot Davey featuring characters from horror through to iconic images like Heath Ledgers Joker.

Another guest at the Market Hall will be sculptor Phillip Thomas Robinson who has worked with Millenium FX on the 60th Anniversary Dr Who specials starring David Tennant and the new series featuring 14th Doctor Ncuti Gatwa. He’s also created highly detailed replicas of classic Doctor Who characters, some of which he will be displaying.

There will also be chances to see superheroes, villains and iconic sci fi characters at Hyde Market Hall and appearing on the Civic Square between 11am until 3pm. Character pop ups will also include  The Mandalorian, face Dalek creator Davros, say hi to Spider-man and confront The Joker. Characters will appear in a random order so make sure you arrive early to catch your favourite.

At 1pm POP on the Civic Square will be hosting a Sci Fi/Superhero Fancy Dress competition too with some great prizes up for grabs!

Hyde Civic Square will also be hosting the monthly Artisan market organised by Little Owl so a great chance to start picking up those early Christmas gifts.
