Magna Science Adventure Centre is the perfect location for such an event and complements perfectly our more intimate event at Sheffield United.

“We are so pleased to have John Morton attending the show as this is a great opportunity for UK Star Wars fans to come along and meet such an iconic actor.

“Sheffield Comic-Con has so much for you to see and do and is packed full of geeky delights! Whatever your age, it is a great day out; and something all of the family can enjoy.”
