A FARM park for disabled children near Chipping Norton is being invaded by some of television's most frightening aliens this weekend.

Fairytale Farm, which is on the A44 just outside Chippy, is holding a special Sci-Fi event on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm to raise money for Helen & Douglas House and Sue Ryder.

Owner Nick Laister said: "Fairytale Farm has had a fantastic start to the summer, with our new attractions all proving very popular with visitors.

"So we thought we would do something completely and utterly different - if not a little crazy - and allow ourselves to be invaded by the scariest alien race in the universe and their friends.

"Although the creatures may be frightening, it is all in a good cause, as we are supporting two charities that are close to our hearts.

"And we are not going to reveal the identities of the aliens that will be visiting as that will spoil the surprise, but what I can say is that these are some of the most famous and iconic monsters you will see on your TV screens."
