Rediscover Stockton




Dragons. Wizards. Daleks. Get ready to be invaded as one of the most exciting sci fi events on the calendar is set to beam down in Stockton.

On Saturday 10 June the town is preparing to once again host Kapow – an event which brings together a whole host of specialist traders who will be selling toys, memorabilia and collectables from every conceivable area of the sci fi world.

But the event is about far more than buying and selling and adding to a collection – it’s the opportunity for families and people of all ages to come down and have a memorable day full of fun.

The event is being staged in a marquee and in and around the High Street, right in the heart of the Business Improvement District which is helping run the event this time round.

“We’ve got an amazing programme lined up for the event,” said Karen Hindhaugh, manager of Stockton BID.

“And we really believe this is going to be a very special day that nobody will want to miss.”

Among the many activities during the day will be a wand making workshops for youngsters, a “hotter than Potter” magic show featuring Professor Duffus, a birds of prey display and the appearance of some extremely well known sci fi “baddies”

We’re not saying who but let’s just hope they don’t exterminate anyone…..

One of the highlights of the day will also be the appearance of a huge animatronic dragon who will be accompanied by a familiar Game of Thrones character.

The 3.5m creature will be doing a number of performances during the day and will interact with the audience.

The hope is that there will also be an appearance by a tv celebrity who has appeared in one of the UK best loved series, which will be confirmed in the near future.

But regardless, Kapow promises to be a day absolutely full of punch!

KAPOW is free to attend and runs from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 10 June
