Sheffield Comic-Con: Here are all the guest stars at this weekend's celebration of nerd culture

Sheffield’s biggest annual celebration of geek culture is back this weekend – here are all the stars who will be in town.

Sheffield Comic-Con will be held on September 25 at the Magna Science Adventure Centre.

In true style, many of the hundreds of visitors are expected to turn out in ‘cosplay’ by wearing outfits styled after their favourite pop-culture icons.

Traders will be on hand selling everything from art to collectables, along with niche nerd items you just cannot find on the high street.

Below is a small taste of the list of television and film guests visitors can meet, including stars from Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings and the actor for Star Wars’ Chewbacca.

Other photo opportunities include a 12ft dinosaur and a host of superheroes including the Ghostbusters, Marvel’s War Machine, Bumblebee from Transformers, and Spiderman.

Advance tickets are available for the event and at the door, priced at for £10 for adults and £5 for under-12s.
