For the whole weekend, the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) becomes an extravaganza of collectorship, cosplay and fandom with the arrival of the Bournemouth Showmasters Film & Comic Con. Visitors of all age celebrated their favourite television shows, films and comics while rubbing shoulders with likeminded fans and screen stars.
Whatever your age, whatever your interest, there’s plenty to captivate and thrill the whole family at the Film & Comic Con, whether you’re into costumes, collecting autographs, sourcing props or meeting fellow fans who share your passion.
During this event, the BIC swarms with screen stars, expert panellists, autograph hunters and traders selling stall-fulls of memorabilia for every film, screen and comic trend imaginable.
Film and television stars making guest appearances in Bournemouth in 2017 included Mark Rolston (Aliens, Star Trek), Jeff Rawle (Harry Potter, Doctor Who), Charlotte Hope (Game of Thrones, The Musketeers), Wendy Padbury (Doctor Who), Shane Rimmer (Thunderbirds, Star Wars) and Matt Zimmerman (Thunderbirds).
