Be prepared for some strange encounters at Hyde Artisan Market this Saturday (6 August).

Time Tunnel events will be taking control of the Civic Square for an ‘Out Of This World’ Sci-Fi event. 

Organiser Andrew Crombie promises characters from Star Wars, Dr Who and more at the event which goes on from 11am until 3pm. 

There will be displays, memorabilia stalls and characters for photo opportunities in the square. 

He will be supported by Hyde Fundraisers who will also be bringing a few of their characters along to join in the fun including The Joker and one of the scary gorillas from Planet Of The Apes. 

So, watch out for Kylo Ren, defy the Daleks and grab a photo with Dr Who dog K-9 and other characters in the Civic Square. 

In addition, there will be chance to buy sci-fi memorabilia too on the day at the Time Tunnel stall. To find out the latest news about the event find Time Tunnel events on Facebook!
