A sci-fi festival is drawing a host of big names to Great Yarmouth.

The guest list includes stars of the medieval fantasy epic Game of Thrones, notably James Faulkner (Randyll Tarly), Toby Sebastian (A Prince of Dorne), and Fintan McKeown (Ser Amory Lorch).

Fans of all things other worldly can also mingle with writers, actors, and storytellers associated with the genre, including Gil Gerard, aka Captain Buck Rogers.

The promoters say: “Gil will be making one of his ultra-rare UK appearances for us this November at our brilliant new venue, also marking a very special 40 year anniversary of one of the defining sci-fi Shows of the 70s/80s, and film of the same name – we couldn’t be happier.”

SFW X Part 2 is bringing it’s “biggest line-up to date” to Vauxhall Holiday Park.

There will also be a range of bands and authors chiming with the horror/sci-fi theme, as well as activities for children.

Doctor Who assistant Sophie Aldred and Primeval actor Andrew Lee Potts are among household names taking part.

Author Dacre Stoker, great grand-nephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker, will be presenting a show Stoker on Stoker.

The weekend runs from October 31 to November 3.
