For the third year in a row, the greatest stars, artists, attractions and cosplayers will be coming to Nottingham for a family-friendly weekend of fun.

Star guests already lined up include two of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – actors Walter Jones and David Yost – who’ll be jetting in from the US to meet fans, while Jeremy Bulloch, better known as Han Solo’s nemesis Boba Fett, will be joining them.

In addition will be Miriam Margolyes, star of favourites including Harry Potter, Blackadder, Babe and Mulan, while more exciting guests will be added to the star-filled line-up between now and the event.

On top of this will be a wide range of dealer tables selling comics, toys, collectables and clothing, comic book artists, props and cars from the film and TV world and a cosplay contest for the best and most inventive costumes.

The event, which has become a firm fixture in the Nottingham calendar, has built an excellent reputation among fans of film and television as well as those seeking a fun-packed day out.
