Talk Nerdy To Me returns to the Harris Museum and library in Preston city centre.
More than 500 people are expected to the evening of celebrating Star Wars, Doctor Who and superheroes among others. The theme for this year’s event is horror films.
Lancashire County Council’s head of libraries, museums and culture Julie Bell said: “The annual nerdycon is a great North West event and will showcase local experts and speakers.
“Last year’s event was a great success and we’re hoping that this year’s convention with a horror theme will prove to be as popular.
“There will be a wide range of activities including a Rocky Horror Show screening, with the props and subtitles supplied so that everyone can join in; drone flying, and talks by experts from UCLan.
“The Haberdash are bringing a Circus of Horrors, there is a fanfiction competition, and as always, cosplay is expected. Indie vendors and big chain names will be running stalls.”
