For the third year in a row, the greatest stars, artists, attractions and cosplayers will be coming to Nottingham for a family friendly weekend of fun from April 29 - 30.

Star guests already lined up include two of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – actors Walter Jones and David Yost – who’ll be jetting in from the US to meet fans, while Jeremy Bulloch, better known as Han Solo’s nemesis Boba Fett, will be joining them.

Miriam Margolyes, star of favourites including Harry Potter, Blackadder, Babe and Mulan, will also be attending and more guests are yet to be added to the star filled line-up between now and the event.
