The event sees the return of the Gaming Zone which will feature four virtual reality systems and three multiplayer Playstation 4 setups.

Steve said: “There’s will be something for little kids and big kids alike.

“For Pokémon Go fans we will be loading the Pokéstop all day with assorted lures so there will be lots of Pokémon to catch.

Northwich Guardian:

“Our aim is once again to have something for everyone, we want everyone to enjoy the event and to come back again next time.”

Comic Con Northwich runs from 10am to 4pm for those who pre-order tickets online, and 11am to 4pm for those paying on the door.
