Star Wars favourites at an earlier fun day

A galaxy far far away is going to be closer than you think when a Star Wars fan fun day once again comes to Burnley.

Stars from the latest instalment of the cult franchise, “The Last Jedi”, will fly in to Turf Moor on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7th, to meet fans.

The ever popular convention is now in its 11th year and regularly attracts scores of fans of the hit film series who clamour to see their heroes in the flesh.

Some of the big names who have appeared in recent years include David Prowse, who played legendary villain Darth Vader, and Kenny Baker, who play lovable droid R2 D2.

Tickets are on sale at and at the door on the day.
