The event has been planned to compliment the opening of the Scene Movie Exhibition in the Winter Gardens which opens at 10am on Saturday.

The action starts on St John’s Square from noon and throughout the afternoon, an outdoor cinema screen will be showing the latest Star Wars movie – The Force Awakens.

The star of the event though looks set to be Titan the Robot who is making a triumphant return to Blackpool.

The huge robot will stride around the square, accompanied by Sci Fi film characters, including Transformers’ Optimus Prime
