A new event has been announced for September this year, this time in Stoke-on-Trent.  There are already some guest announcements in the form of actors and more are promised along with the now obligatory cosplay competitions.  The event marks a large increase in conventions in the wider Midlands area, joining the likes of the Nottingham Comic Con, Leicester Comic Con and the Leamington Comic Con to form smaller and more accessible events as opposed to the MCM behemoth.

The event is scheduled for the 28th September at Staffordshire University.  Their website is now live and can be found at http://stokecontrent.co.uk/ and you can also follow them on Twitter at @stokecontrent
