Im not a big fan of sci-fi, but my Husband and Son love all things Sci-fi/gaming so we decided to give this popular event a go and continue the Halloween vibe. Sheffields Out of this world event.

It wasnt just sci-fi and included comic books, gaming, magic, illusion or all things spooky too, The Out Of This World festival was a free event spread throughout the city, It was entertainment for everyone young and old. We had never been to the event which had returned for its third year and is growing in size and popularity each year.

 The event was spread throughout the city including the Peace Gardens, Winter Garden, Millennium Square, Town Hall Square, Tudor Square, Fargate, Barkers Pool, Town Hall and The Moor.

Sci-fi, comic book and gaming Zone

Winter Garden, Town Hall, Tudor Square, Millennium Square and the Peace Gardens

This zone had fantastic sci-fi, comic book, gaming and fantasy which also went on into the Town Hall. From retro arcade games and board games to comic book artists, trade stands and themed displays. Throughout this area we saw walkabouts from Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, the Arrow Squad, Iron Man and lots of popular Superheroes including Deadpool. This was the kids favourite part of the event my big lad more so but my little girl also enjoyed the photo sessions getting pictures with their favourite Superheroes.  My sons favourite was Deadpool and of course seeing the Pokamon characters.

There was a full programme of mystifying illusion and magic. It’s was very busy around there and we didn’t get to see as much as we’d liked but everyone who was watching seemed to be enjoying it.

Horror Zone – The Moor

I “ain’t afraid of no ghosts” here we managed to grab a picture of the Ghostbusters car.

Horror themed fancy dress was definitely top on the days dress code and here we saw a very scary zombie even I was a little scared never mind the kids.

The event was definitely successful and the city was bursting with families dressed up in their own costumes. We will definitely return next year and maybe dress up ourselves.

Hope you enjoyed reading about this great event.

Until next time
