Creature Features prepares for arrival of superheroes and horror characters at model expo this weekend
SUPERHEROES, much-loved television icons and horror characters will descend on Northwich this weekend as the UK’s biggest garage model kit returns to town.
The UK Garage Kit (UKGK) Expo, held at the Blue Cap Hotel, Sandiway, on Saturday, September 28, will showcase collectable model kits, character figures and life-size models of some of the silver screen’s favourite characters.
Visitors and suppliers are expected to travel the length of the country to attend the prestigious event, which marks its fourth year this weekend.
The expo has been organised by Blakemere-based Creature Features, which specialised in movie memorabilia and collectables, including a vast range of make-at-home models, known as garage kits, and resin character figures.
David Nicholson, who runs the business with his partner Rachel Hunt, said: “It is bigger each year and dealers come from all over the country.
“We have tons of new releases exclusive for the show including large Gerry Anderson displays, Thunderbird, Captain Scarlet puppets and two local writers will be signing their latest books.”
The event is said to be real treat for enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike, with t-shirts and a vast array of movie memorabilia also available.
Saturday will see the launch of Creature Feature’s Halloween exciting range, including make-up, prosthetics, contact lenses and fancy dress.
The UKGK Expo will be held from 10am to 4pm at the Blue Cap Hotel, Sandiway.
Admission is free.
