Unicon is being held at the Devonshire Dome on Sunday and will give science fiction and comic fans a day out to remember.

Organiser Steven Howard said: “We are trying to take the Comic Con scene to areas that never get a chance to see one and although the snow in March didn’t allow us to fulfil that statement, this weekend will see a Comic Con take place in the stunning and prestigious Devonshire Dome.”

Visitors will be treated to displays including the Super Heroes Iron Man stand, Mandalorians, Battlestar Galatica Fleet, KITT Knightrider, Lightning McQueen and LAPD cars, with plenty of photo opportunities, costumers and more.
