Star line-up for EM-Con

EM-Con, the East Midlands sci-fi and fantasy event has been extended to cover the entire weekend of April 30 and May 1, 2016.

Taking place for the second year running at Capital FM Arena Nottingham, this event is rapidly becoming a stand out event in the local calendar.

The addition of a second day means even more special guests, traders, Q&As and cosplayers in attendance to celebrate shows and films such as Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and more.

To celebrate 50 years of Star Trek, Walter Koenig who played Chekov in the original series will fly into Nottingham from LA to meet fans and sign autographs. Also flying in will be Austin St. John, the original Red Power Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

EM-Con will also be welcoming Leo Gregory from the BBC show Musketeers who will be signing autographs and joining fans for photographs, and as we approach 2016 more guests will be announced.

Alongside these guests will be the regular assortment of comic book artists, writers, film and television props and a huge number of fans descending on Nottingham to celebrate the very best in film and television.

Tickets are £11.20 and £16.80 (includes administration fee) and can be booked online at 0843 373 3000.
