The Dundas Sci-Fi and Fantasy Market takes place on Saturday 3 November.

There will be a host of live action Sci-Fi and Fantasy figures at the Dundas Sci-Fi and Fantasy Market and Comic Book Event in Middlesbrough’s Dundas Shopping Centre on Saturday 3 November from 10am to 4pm.

A live action Star Wars crew will be on hand for meet and greets and photos, along with more than 20 Science Fiction and Fantasy themed stalls, selling a range of unique gifts, including artworks, toys and cakes.

Organised by Jon Dea, the man behind other successful local markets and events such as Kirkleatham Sci-Fi and Comic Con and the Dundas Handmade and Vintage market, the free Dundas Sci-Fi and Fantasy Market and Comic Event will have fun for all the family.

Mr Dea says: “Whatever interests you about Sci-fi or fantasy, there is going to be something for everyone at our event, with perfect Christmas present for geeks, characters to meet, plenty to look at, and fellow enthusiasts to talk to.”

Dundas Market Manager David Harris says: “This is our third Sci-fi and Fantasy Market and is our most popular event. It attracts hundreds of enthusiasts, so we are delighted to be holding it once again. While they are browsing the sci-fi and fantasy, our visitors can also sample some hot food, sweets, treats, breads and cakes from Jean’s Kitchen, Indy’s Grub To Go and Cooplands, as well as taking a look at Forbidden Planet, Games Workshop, Kindamagic, The Festival Shop, Boyes, B&M, and all our other retailers.”

Customer car parking is available in the 178-space Dundas Shopping Centre basement car park, accessed off Wilson Street.
