This year, the Out Of This World Festival is taking place on Sunday 27th October 2019 10:30am – 5:30pm Sheffield City Centre. It is a FREE event, suitable for ALL ages and also includes the FREE Little Monsters The Moor Halloween Party on the same day at 11am to 4pm.
The festival is to celebrate all things Sci-Fi, Magic and Halloween and is on the same day as another fab event for kids; Little Monsters Halloween Party at The Moor. So you get two in one day! I highly recommend both, and both are completely free. Out Of This World is fun for all ages so it’s suitable for all the family.
What is at Out Of This World?
There’s funfair rides, characters, food, drink, games, caged mummy, fancy dress, spooky storytelling and loads more. I was really impressed last year at the amount of things to do it really is a fantastic day out in the City Centre and kids (and adults!) just love it.
Sci-fi, comic and gaming zone
Winter Garden, Town Hall, Tudor Square, Millennium Square and the Peace Gardens
The fast growing sci-fi, comic book and gaming zone is home to Superheroes, cosplay, trade stalls, gaming, comic book artists and displays. You’ll encounter your favourite heroes and villains and some of the best in ‘out of this world’ street entertainment
Town Hall Square and the Town Hall
A programme of mystifying illusion and magic – some of the UK’s best magicians and illusionists can be found in this zone. Magic that will astound you – from sleight of hand to the weird and wonderful! See if you can learn a few tricks in the magic workshops for aspiring young witches and wizards, or maybe just try and work out how they are done
Little Monsters will be running loose on The Moor, so get your Halloween fancy dress on and enjoy all sorts of spooky attractions! Brought to us by MoorSheffield this zone is all set up for younger children and families to get into the spooky spirit.
With plenty of shops fully stocked for Christmas – it may also be the perfect time to make a start on the festive shopping or pick up your last minute Halloween must haves.

Top Tips for enjoying Out Of This World 2018 & Little Monsters The Moor Halloween Party, Sheffield:
Dress up! Go all out or just face paints; anything goes and dressing up really is part of the event and a great way to join in.
Locate baby changes. The City Centre will be busy on the day with both events taking place, so plan and check ahead where the best baby changes are in the city centre so you know where to go. I recommend John Lewis!
If you plan to eat out, book ahead to avoid disappointment. If you need some ideas of the best Family Friendly places to dine in the city centre, check this guide. Why not save money and use Meerkat meals for 2-4-1 on family friendly restaurants?
Check the map. There are lots of different areas and buildings for both events and some of it we missed out last year. It’s a good idea to check the maps before you go and remember/note down where you want to go so you don’t forget and miss out. The Winter Gardens is good for cosplay, dinosaurs and costumes. The Moor Little Monsters Party has some fantastic halloween dancing and entertainment.
Public transport. If you can, use public transport into the city centre as roads and parking will be busy. On street parking is free on Sundays in the city centre but is always very busy during popular events such as this one.
Last year, we dressed up and headed out to city centre to enjoy the atmosphere and entertainment at Out Of This World. It was great to see sooo many fantastic cosplay, costumes, entertainers, characters and robots. Eric’s favourite highlights was the lightning McQueen and other cars outside Winter Gardens, robots, a huge dinosaur in the Winter Gardens, and monsters. You’ll have a fantastic time. 🙂
