Join us at Woodhorn on Sunday 21st July for the 10th instalment of the annual sci-fi extravaganza, Invasion

Meet a host of science fiction characters ranging from Daleks to Doctors, Jedis to Jawas and many more! Do you or your family members love dressing up? Make sure you don your finest Sci Fi, Comic & Super Hero outfits for this brilliant and fun family day out!

Don’t miss the sci-fair & themed crafts in our historic workshop galleries and keep your eyes peeled for costumed character pop-up activities running across the museum site throughout the day.

We’ll also have some fabulous food and drink stalls on site (alongside the museum cafe) to help keep your superhero powers up on this brilliantly busy day out.

This event is hosted by Woodhorn Museum and organised by a team of dedicated volunteers raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support (261017) and Woodhorn Charitable Trust (1129712).

This event features volunteer and visitor cosplayers dressed as a range of science fiction and comic book themed characters. Many of these famous characters, ranging from Daleks to Deadpool, do portray varying degrees of threat and violence.
