Stormtroopers from a far away galaxy invaded the beaches and streets of Bridlington recently…..but it was all part of the fun for visitors to the 2019 Comic Con
The annual event, held at Bridlington Spa, attracted hundreds of fans from all over the area.
Marvel comic characters mixed with Star Wars favourites, with many sci-fi and gaming characters in between.
Special guests for the day-long extravaganza was TV legend Paul Chuckle (Chuckle Brothers), along with Wendy Padbury and Peter Purves (Dr Who) and many other stars from film, television, and the internet.
Chewbacca made several appearance outside the Spa to take part in photo-opportunities and Darth Vader halted the land train so he could have his picture taken with guests.
Visitors enjoyed a huge range of activities including Virtual Reality gaming, workshops, minecraft, lego, retro video games, a creative zone and dozens of traders and exhibitors.
Event organiser Steve Bowman said: “ We had another great day in Bridlington, with well over a thousand people attending the event again this year. It was great to see the range of ages that were all enjoying the event and taking part in the activities from drawing workshops to virtual reality gaming. It was also amazing for us to bring a star like Paul Chuckle to Brid, who is a part of so many people childhoods and has so many great stories to tell.”
“We will definitely be back again next year and and it will be in September again.” said Steve.
