The Daleks will invade the Central Library as part of a sci-fi celebration later this month.
Dr Who’s enemies will be at the Regent Circus library on Saturday, 13 November collecting for charity and meeting library users from 10am.
The day will feature a Dalek colouring competition judging in the morning and a sci-fi dressing up competition in the afternoon with different categories for children under five, children aged between six and 10 and for those aged 11 and over.
Local children’s sci-fi author David Johnson will also be holding writing workshops for budding authors throughout the day and signing copies of his Crystal Quest book series.
To celebrate the sci fi event, the Central Library will be repeating the Doctor Who reading and listening challenge until 30th November, for children aged 17 and under.
Children have to read or listen to four Doctor Who titles, two of which have to be audiobooks and those who complete the challenge will be entered into a prize draw.
Further information is available from the library
The Daleks will be supplied by Ady Davies from Corsham, the organiser of the CharityDaleks organisation, which uses science fiction to raise money for local and national charities. A similar event held in Corsham in April raised more than £4,700 for the British Heart Foundation, PHAB and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
