Stars of the big and small screen are set to descend on Swindon for a Film and Comic Con Extravaganza. 

The event, run by Stars of Time, who organise the successful annual Comic Con at the Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare, will be transforming the STEAM Museum into a haven for fans of Star Wars, Marvel, Doctor Who, Indiana Jones and many more film and TV properties.

On June 22, guests will be able to meet and experience different aspects of their favourite universes in brand-new zoned areas for 2024

Alongside some of the guest stars this year, including Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who) and Mike Quinn (Star Wars), the event is back with even more prop displays, competitions, character meet and greets and entertainment. Visitors will also be able to come face-to-face with some iconic villains including Daleks, Storm Troopers and Cybermen.

Pop-culture fans attending the Comic Con are invited to arrive dressed-up as their favourite TV, film or other fictional character and will be able to enter a free cosplay competition during the weekend.

And new for this year is the opportunity to create a mini-me with ‘Model U’ where attendees can be scanned and printed in miniature.

There will also be opportunities for fans to explore a wide range of merchandise from various traders that specialise in all things pop culture.

Tickets for the event are on sale now:

Harry Burrows, event organiser at Stars of Time, said: “We are excited to be bringing the event to Swindon for the third time this summer following on from the amazing response we received at STEAM Museum for the last two years.
