A two day event celebrating the world of pop-culture, film and television will return to Wrexham in September.

During the weekend visitors will have the chance to meet some of the stars of Red Dwarf, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who and the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Question and answer panels will take place, giving fans the chance to ask their favourite actors about their experiences on screen and career highlights.
The event will see the return of Wales Comic Con fan favourites, such as the Cosplay Masquerade where visitors have the chance to showcase their costumes and pay homage to their pop culture idols.
Also on offer are gaming opportunities for both video and tabletop enthusiasts, as well as starter flash classes for budding comic book artists.
There will also be the chance to grab a selfie with some of the displays from film and TV.
