Marvel, DC, Avengers, Justice League, X-Men, Fantastic Four, whatever your poison you can find your fix this weekend at the Geek Out Collective’s fourth annual convention.

The convention is a free event for all fans of pop culture, where enthusiasts can get together and ‘Geek Out’ over their favourite characters, debate theories, listen to renowned geeky musician Meri Amber and take part in all kinds of fun.

"Geeks aren't just kids anymore. Since shows like The Big Bang Theory and movies like The Avengers came out people have realised how much fun it is to be a geek," the Geek Out Collective’s Matthew Apps said.
