On August 18th this year, the second annual Invasion Colchester takes place in England’s oldest recorded town, and once again ACE Comics are helping out.
Invasion Colchester is raising money for three local charities – the Invicta Foundation, Colchester Community Voluntary Services and the Colchester Hospitals Charity – with a whole host of superheroes and characters from TV and film descending on the town centre between 10am and 4:30pm.
So far, you will be able to meet Batman, Batgirl, Captain America, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2, various Doctor Whos, Sweeney Todd and Goose and Maverick from Top Gun amongst others, as well as a horde of Imperial Forces and Colonial Marines.
There will be a handful of people who have appeared in the Star Wars saga signing autographs at Colchester Library while in Red Lion Walk live bands will appear, including an outstanding Blues Brothers tribute act. Running throughout the day is a great character hunt and fancy dress competition for kids, face painting and a massive raffle.
It was a great day out last year and we’re hoping it will be again this year!
