ONE of Wrexham's biggest and most popular events is being moved to a new England.

Organisers of Wales Comic Con, one of the biggest and best comic conventions in Europe, which was last held at Wrexham Glyndwr University at the end of April, have confirmed the bi-annual event will be moving to Telford International Centre.

Having celebrated its tenth anniversary last year, the next instalment in its history will take place across the border on December 7 & 8.

A statement released by Wales Comic Con said: "We're very pleased and super excited to announce our new event, just over the border - Wales Comic Con: Telford Takeover!

"As you know, the past few Wales Comic Cons have been the biggest ever and our traditional Welsh stomping ground has become a little... cosy.

"You've asked for a new and bigger venue (preferably one out of the rain), and we're thrilled to finally be able to deliver as we head to the Telford International Centre for our winter event.

"More details will of course follow, so make sure to keep an eye on our website and social media. As soon as we have further announcements, we'll be sure to let you know!

"Please note that this will replace the normal winter Wales Comic Con, but not to worry! We'll be working with the same awesome team, so you can still expect everything that you've come to love about WCC, but bigger, better and more indoors than ever!

"So it's hwyl fawr for now, Wales (we'll see you soon!) and here we come, Telford!"
