A few of us will be at the National Space Centre (in Leicester) this coming weekend (27th and 28th June) for their Return of the Garrison Star Wars weekend.


Meet the stars and your favourite characters in the National Space Centre’s tribute weekend to a galaxy far far away.   This is the ultimate family and fan weekend, set in the perfect venue for this science fiction classic.


Come along to this huge Star Wars invasion, with something for everybody (don`t forget it is ALL for charity too, so the Dark Side really does have a heart - don`t tell Darth Vader). 


-Meet your favourite character

-Take part in the Droid Hunt

-See if you have what it takes to be a Jedi Master

-Drop in to the Replica and Prop display

-Play retro Star Wars games

-Have a chat with the Droids you ARE looking for

-Discover awesome Star Wars models

-Have a go at Star Wars laser tag

-Meet Star Wars artists-See real stars from the movies


We`ll have a big table with Star Wars models (plus a few others to show our range) and will be running a few demos as well over the weekend.  So please do come along if you are in the area.  Tickets still available.

Just got back home from the show. This was an amazing weekend with just so much interest in what we were doing. I`d say way more interest than at a general model show. Stand was rammed a lot of the time with people looking, talking and taking photos.

We raised nearly £400 for charity as well and all got to meet Warwick Davis who drew the raffle for us (everything went to his charity).

So all round a really amazing showing. Huge thanks to Mark and Steve for attending and especially Pete for organising it. My daughter also had a fab time on Sunday having her photo taken with everyone from the 501st.

We`ve also been invited back next year and planning something big already to go with the huge display space we`ve been offered.

Too tired tonight but will get photos up over the next few days.

Thanks guys you`ve done SFM:uk proud in a way we`ve never done before!!!

Here are a few teasers for now.  More soon.



This is what the stand looked like a lot of the time.  It`s behind there somewhere.



A visit from some Imperial heavies.



Steve getting Warwick`s wife, Sam, to draw the winning raffle ticket. And Rosemary somehow managed to sneak in there as well.


Warwick drawing the second prize.



The only one of Rosemary meeting the various 501st`s I`ll bore you with.  She was nervous to start with and we saw Princess Leia and it was all okay.  They even swapped guns which is why Rosemary has a very realistic looking resin one and the Princess has one knocked together from a water pistol. She loved every Stormtrooper acknowledging her with "Hello Princess".
