Sunday's event encouraged cosplayers to don their outfits and enjoy a day of special guests, extraordinary props and otherworldly merchandise from some of the world's most renowned films, TV shows and comic books.

Entertaining the crowds were the likes of Only Fools and Horses stars John Challis and Sue Holderness, better known as Boyce and Marlene, Red Dwarf's morose computer Holly (Norman Lovett), graphic novel artist and entertainer Jessica Martin, and Doctor Who's latest bad guy, Tzim Sha, aka Sam Oatley.

A replica of the Ecto1 car from Ghostbusters, as well as a couple of American police cars, made their way up Holywell Hill, and a Dalek glided menacingly around the venue.

Host Paul Waidley said afterwards: "Thank you to everyone that joined us on Sunday!
