The five day event, which is taking place between February 10 and 14, attracts hundreds of people from across the globe and is the largest festival of its kind in the UK.

Festival organiser, Gabrielle Kent, said:

"Animex is a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate our love of gaming and animation with colleagues and friends from across the globe.

"Each year we try and better ourselves and this year is no different. We have an amazing line up of talented speakers and we will also be welcoming Animex Comics for its second year."
