Wands at The Ready, Sci-Fi Scarborough 2016 Adds Dash of Magic

Jon Campling

Sci-Fi Scarborough have announced yet another guest for next years all weekend convention at the Scarborough Spa.

Returning due to popular demand, they welcome back Jon Campling to the event.

Best known as the chief Death Eater who stops the mighty Hogwarts Express with just a slow raise of his hand in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, he is also seen whipping out his red umbrella in those medieval Specsaver ads during the big movies on Film 4 and Channel 4 and pops up in many cult indie films and series such as Kosmos and Predator Dark Ages.

Co-Organiser Steve Dickinson said:

"SFS 2015 was Jon’s first ever Convention and was such a great hit with the fans and attendees that we got so many emails requesting that he return. The fact that he stars in Predator Dark Ages (which is part of our Fan Film Theatre programme) and will be able to introduce the project and talk about it is great. Obviously, with his involvement in Harry Potter and all his other roles, it makes it a double bonus for us. Plus, he’s a Yorkshire lad and that always helps!"

The event would also like to introduce their new Comlink mailing list service so fans can receive the latest updates, announcements, competitions and more by simply visiting and signing up.

Sci-Fi Scarborough takes place on Sat 9th & Sun 10th April 2016, tickets are available from The Spa Complex box office or
