Honiton experienced an extra-terrestrial invasion as sci-fi heroes and villains of generations past and present visited the town.

The characters were present as part of a charitable event held by the Exewing Fundraisers.

The meet-and-greet raised £241 for end-of-life charity Hospiscare.

Wendy Duffield, chair of the Exewing Fundraisers, said: “The kids loved it and really enjoyed having their photos taken with the Daleks and Tardis and R2-D2.

“It was really popular - the kids went home and told their neighbours, and then they would turn up!”

The event also gave the group an opportunity to share information about their big upcoming event on July 22.

The fun-day, which will see sci-fi actor Jerome Blake visit Honiton, is being held at the Mackarness Hall.

He has appeared in such films as The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Star Wars and Fifth Element.

The event, from 10am to 4pm, will also feature costumed characters, autograph sessions, prop displays from popular movies and TV shows, competitions and dealer tables. Visit www.exewing.co.uk for more information about the event and to find out more on the Exewing Fundraisers.
