A WHOLE host of familiar characters from movies and popular TV programmes were in Salisbury at the weekend.

The Geek Events’ Salisbury Comic-Con returned to City Hall on Saturday and brought together fans of science fiction, fantasy and comic books.

There was also an opportunity to meet the actors from their favourite films and TV shows, including Paul Blake who played Greedo in Star Wars and Ian McNeice and Red Dwarf stars Norman Lovett and Chris Barrie.

Those attending the event were encouraged to dress up for the occasion with costumes inspired by Predator, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars, Doctor Who and Harry Potter to name just a few.
