If anyone has seen Hollywood Blockbuster Back to the Future then you'll be able to sit in a real life Delorean parked outside the centre.

Event Organiser, Ian Bonar, of BGCP Comic Con, said: “Last year's Ayr Comic Con was one of my favourite events as we expected a big turnout but the people that showed up on the day far exceeded that.

"We're aiming to make it even better this year and I am looking forward to seeing plenty of people coming along to the event dressed as their favourite superheroes and villains.”
