Doctor in the House for Blackburn’s Second Comic Con

Organisers of the Blackburn Comic Con have announced that Colin Baker, the sixth doctor in the long running BBC Series Dr Who will be coming to King Georges Hall on Saturday 4 November.

As the sci-fi world braces itself for the first female incarnation of the Time Lord in its eleventh regeneration, the team have announced a bigger and better line up of comic artists and writers, guests from TV and movies. This is the second year that the Blackburn Business Improvement District (BID) have sponsored the venue as part of a marketing and events initiative to bring new visitors to the town centre.

Organiser, Neil Livesey of Wonky Rocket Events said, ‘It’s been an ambition to establish a comic con in Blackburn for some time and thanks to the Blackburn BID’s support over the last two years we have been able to grow the event across both venues within King Georges Hall offering fans and families even more things to do, see and buy in the run up to Christmas.’

Wonky Rocket Events are the team behind Preston Comic Con, Carlisle Comic Con and St Helens Comic Con as well as corporate events. The event at King Georges Hall will have over 50 stalls selling collectors items and memorabilia, props and models displays. There will be costumed performers and Q&A sessions with actors and experts.

Actor Colin Baker said, ‘I’ve appeared at several Wonky Rocket Events and always had a great time. I’m really looking to meeting the people of Blackburn. It’s going to be a great day!”
