Light Sabres at the ready, Star Wars Gathering comes to Exhibition Centre Liverpool
In a galaxy not that far away, super fans of Star Wars will gather to celebrate all things Jedi.
Exhibition Centre Liverpool is hosting a fundraising event that is out of this world and you’re invited. Celebrating 40 years since the iconic film burst onto our screens, and the incredible cult following it has amassed, Star Wars Gathering is calling all super fans, young and old to don their best costumes and props, and enjoy a day dedicated to the force.
Following in the footsteps of an hugely successful, Liverpool Comic Con event earlier this year, Star Wars Gathering, taking place on Saturday 7th July 2018, offers fans the opportunity to meet actors and crew from all 3 eras of Star Wars, including actor, Spencer Wilding, or Darth Vader as he’s better known, plus you can browse and purchase all manner of official merchandise and check out epic set builds, all under one roof.
There’s cosplay competitions, Q&A sessions with the stars, autography and photo sessions and the chance to re-enact some seriously awesome scenes from your favourite movies.
Star Wars Gathering is a not-for-profit event, with all proceeds from the one day celebration being donated to Marie Curie in Woolton. Even Organiser Stephen Byrne came up with the idea to support the local charity after a close family member received care and support through illness. With his kids being huge Star Wars fans, Stephen decided to put together this mass appreciation event which quickly gained support from a number of special guest actors and original crew from the movie franchise.
Adult tickets are £16.50 and kids are £9.90 with under 4’s going free. There’s great deals on family tickets so why not get your mini Yoda’s, Leia’s and Stomies dressed up and have a fun, family day out.
