SCI-FI fans will be in for an out-of-this-world treat next month as a major convention returns to Portsmouth.

The Fantasy Comic-Con – or F-Con for short – will be coming to the Mountbatten Centre for an all-day bonanza of science-fiction on Sunday, May 21.

Visitors will be able to meet Doctor Who star Dan Starkey, who played Sontaran commando Strax, see the Batmobile, and play retro computer games. Other attractions include a cosplay contest, Jedi Fight Academy, where youngsters will be taught how to use a lightsabre, and a chance to win a 4ft Millennium Falcon.

Tickets are on sale now. Adults are £6 and children are £4. The event is from 10am to 5pm. For details, see f-con.co.uk.
