Massive convention For The Love of Sci Fi comes to the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester this weekend – along with some of cinema’s beloved sci-fi stars.
The line up of special guests includes David Hasselhoff, William Shatner, and Billie Dee Williams, and if they aren’t enough to peak your interest, there’s also a full scale Cantina Bar from Star Wars, included in the price of a standard ticket and free to access all day.
There will also be sets and props from classic blockbusters, including Hagrid’s Hut from Harry Potter, K.I.T.T from Knight Rider, Daleks from Doctor Who, Ecto 1 from Ghostbusters, and The Advanced ship from Star Wars.
6ft 10 Finnish actor Joonas Suotamo – who played Chewbacca in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi – joins the star studded guest list with his first ever UK appearance. Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters) and Zach Galligan (Gremlins) will also be attending.
There’s an after party until late on both days, featuring live music from Star Wars tribute band Blues Harvest and DJ Leroy. There are also Lightsaber training workshops, an Artists’ Corner, and Guest Panels available throughout the day.
Tickets for Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of December are selling out fast, and are available here.
