HUNDREDS of sci-fi fans enjoyed mingling with some of their beloved characters from their favourite films, TV shows and graphic novels.

Kapow took over Stockton High Street on Saturday afternoon

There was an 8ft tall, 17ft long T-Rex, and safari rangers are bringing new-born dinosaurs for a special meet and greet session.

And there was also guest performances from professional model maker Gary Pollard, who has designed creatures for Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Doctor Who.

Daleks returned for another year, along with Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers and Scout troopers as part of 99th Garrison who hosted several workshops.

Young and old were able to have their pictures taken alongside their favourite character while many people took advantage of the workshops and stalls.
