THE MUCH-loved Wales Comic Con will be returning to Wrexham this weekend.

The popular convention temporarily moved from Wrexham University to Telford International Centre back in 2019, but made its long-awaited return to the north Wales venue in August of last year. 

Formed in 2009, down the years it has proven to be one of Wrexham's most popular events on the calendar.

And this year - to be held at the university this weekend (September 2 and 3) - will be no different as guests cosplay their way to another memorable day and get the chance to meet some of their heroes.

Earlier this week, the Comic Con team said it was 'pleased' to announce that priority tickets for Saturday had officially sold out, with VIP Weekend Passes also selling out.


Among one of the more unusual but popular attractions this year will be free live wrestling events put on by PCW stars over both days.

Meanwhile, the likes of the Gamers Bus Our will be bringing guests the ultimate experience in console and desktop glory.

Photo Opportunities will of course also be available with the likes of Red Dwarf stars Chris Barrie (Arnold Rimmer) and Danny John-Jules (Cat) and many more.

Among the stars set to appear in Wrexham this year are ...

TJ Thyne (Bones), Femi Taylor (Satar Wars), Dan Starkey (Doctor Who), Michael Jayston (Doctor Who), Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood/Doctor Who), Patricia Quinn (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Mark Addy (Game of Thrones), Steve Speirs (Star Wars), Catrin Stewart (Doctor Who), James Cosmo (Game of Thrones), Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who), Amanda Abbington (Sherlock) and Terence Maynard (The Witcher).

As usual, Wales Comic Con's live Q&A panels will provide a rare chance for guests to connect with their favourite stars in a more personal way. 

Above all, the event is seen as the perfect place to unleash your creativity and express yourself as your favourite character.

If you're feeling especially bold, you can even show off your costume on stage at the Masquerade for a chance to win some amazing prizes!
