May the Fourth be with you at National Space Centre

For over 12 years the National Space Centre has hosted amazing family and fan weekend events to celebrate a galaxy far far away.

This year they are launching a very special “adult only” evening of music, art, science, fashion and food, that will be dedicated to celebrating the Dark Side of the Force, with maybe a hint of the Rebellion!

Blues Harvest will be taking to the main stage to rock the Cantina all night. With Lapti Nik on lead vocals and guitar, Sham Solo on guitar, Bass Windu on bass, General Groovus on the drums and Androo Detoo on the keys.

The catwalk and market will be dedicated to some May the Fourth inspired fashion. Shop till you drop, or just see some geek chic on display.

Visitors can also watch skilled Body Paint Artists create Star Wars inspired pieces on live models.

The event will see one of the largest collection of Star Wars inspired Steampunk art, props, costumes and helmets on display, as well as some fun activities happening throughout the Centre.

There will be Lightsaber training and even a chance for teams to take on each other in a laser tag challenge, that will run throughout the Solar System gallery, taking the battle to the planets!

Of course there will be a LIVE Science Zone, to learn more about the science facts behind the fiction, as well as a chance to grab some memorabilia, or even a Porg Pie, in the Hyperspace Hypermarket.
