"We got in some amazing actors from the movies who went down very well with the fans. People were saying how lovely the actors were, taking their time, talking to fans and posing for photographs.

“We had more people than any other year in costume and more people enter the cos play competition than any other year.

"They put together these amazing costumes based on TV or game characters and they all came together in front of the judges who decided who was the best.

"Pennywise from the movie It won the adults category and Edward Scissorhands won the juniors category.”
