Scunthorpe Sci-Fest is set to invade The Baths Hall once again on Sunday 4 November 2018.

Tickets are on sale now for the family event that will see Daleks, Droids, Doctors and superheroes take over the Doncaster Road venue from 11am to 5pm.

This year, special guest Scott Goodman will be materialising as the third Doctor, and the Stormtroopers of the Sentinel Squad will be back to crush the Rebel Alliance.

Young Padawans won’t want to miss the Jedi Training Academy on the day, or the Minecraft and coding activities. Lab Rascals will also be there with their award-winning hands-on science experiments for kids.

Staff from 20-21 Visual Arts Centre will be flying in with sci-fi craft activities for all.

The usual Cosplay competition will return, with prizes up for grabs, plus a sci-fi quiz. You can also expect to see replica props, models, costumed characters and browse a range of retailers.

Tickets are on sale now; get yours in person from Scunthorpe Central. It costs £4 for a single ticket or £10 for a family ticket (two adults and two children, or one adult and three children).

Tickets bought on the day will cost £6 for a single and £12 for a family.

Cllr David Rose, the council’s cabinet member for Children, Families, Learning and Leisure, said:

“After taking a brief hiatus in 2017, North Lincolnshire Library Service has brought back their ever-popular Sci-Fest this year and it looks set to be another out of this world event.

“The event brings in people from across the area, and beyond, and proceeds from Sci-Fest go to Mayor’s Appeal Fund, which this year is supporting Lindsey Lodge Hospice and The Fire Fighters Charity.

“Get your tickets now to save up to a third off the entry price on the day.”
