KAPOW Sci-Fi Market - a must for all Sci-Fi fans–beam down to our Kapow sci-fi specialist market, based in our High Street marquee, as we bring together a host of specialist traders selling a range of sci-fi, TV and film related toys, action figures and collectables. Featuring an ‘out of this world’ range of goods, magical treats and refreshments.

Meet a T-Rex - meet ‘REX’ the baby dinosaur! He’s 8ft tall and 17ft long, so makes a huge impact when he stomps around the High Street with a loud ROOOAR! He might be ferocious-looking but don’t be scared, he’s funny and friendly with it!

Meet the Dino Babies - the Safari Rangers are coming to Stockton-on-Tees with their newborn dinos for you to meet and get a photo with. Freshly hatched, these inquisitive babies are a delightful addition to KAPOW. They are cute! But... watch your fingers, they are still teething!

Meet Gary Pollard - a professional model maker who has designed many creatures from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones & Doctor Who. Gary will also be transforming the winning design from the ‘Design a Dino’ Competition from 2D to 3D.

Daleks Exterminate - the Daleks are one of the most feared races in the universe, they will be invading KAPOW and patrolling the High Street. Ask them for a selfie if you dare!

Star Wars Exhibition - at KAPOW you’ll see some amazing Star Wars props, including a Speeder Bike, a Wampa, Droids, a Landspeeder and more – it’s a must see for all Star Wars fans!

99th Garrison - a small regiment of Stormtroopers, Sandtroopers and Scout troopers will be mixing with KAPOW crowds, keeping order with their unique brand of inter-galactic law enforcement.
