Numerous stalls and vendors will be showcasing their wares alongside fun displays, film props and interactive experiences.

Stella Gould, the organiser at Fanzone Events said: “We are a family-run business and have been trading at comic cons all around the country for about 10 years now.

“Four years ago we organised our very first comic-con in the Watford area, small event but a very successful one. Onthe back of this we then started to expand.

“There are traders at our events selling everything from artwork to Lego, collectable toys and figures to jewellery and much, much more. It’s a great family day out.”

There will also be the jeep from Jurassic Park, R2D2 and the throne from Game of Thrones to see.

Visitors are encouraged to take part in the Comic Con Cosplay competition.
