Tim Russ from Star Trek Voyager, Jon Campling and Louis Cordice from the Harry Potter series and Ryan Gage from The Hobbit will be helping to bring NOR-CON to life at the Norfolk Showground.

Shane Rimmer and Matt Zimmerman, the voices of Scott Tracy and Alan Tracy in Thunderbirds, are also among the names signed up to the event which takes place next month.

The annual science fiction spectacular, which started in 2009, has moved to the Norfolk Showground and was last year extended from a one day event to a two day show.

Mark Dean, director of Nor-Con Events Limited, said fans can once again look forward to a two day spectacular, which takes place between Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30, with something for everyone.
