There's just under two weeks to go until one of the south’s quirkiest events.

Southampton Comic Con caters for families, sci-fi collectors, fans and cosplayers, and will take place from 10am until 5pm on Saturday, April 27 at Places Leisure in Eastleigh.

The event has plenty to see and do, including a retro gaming zone, a Pokemon display, a life-sized Star Wars pod-racer and much more.

Perhaps most exciting are the planned appearances of some sci-fi stars from movies and TV.

Among them are Jo Martin who was Ruth Clayton/The Doctor in Doctor Who series 12, Brian Wheeler, who starred as Ewok in Return of the Jedi and a Gringotts Goblin in Harry Potter, and Julian Glover, the actor of General Veers in The Empire Strikes Back and the voice of Aragog the giant spider in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Tickets are £9 for adults and £5 for children.
