If Star Wars mania is affecting you and you can’t wait for the release of “The Force Awakens”, at Christmas, you can get an early fix at Ashton Market on Saturday, September 26.
Andrew Crombie, proprietor of the Time Tunnel stall in the market hall at Ashton Market, has organised a sci-fi day where the special guest will be make-up artist Shaune Harrison who worked on Captain America and the Harry Potter series, as well as all the Star Wars films, where he created Jar Jar Binks and Jabba the Hutt’s majordomo Bib Fortuna.
The Empire’s feared storm troopers will be invading the area but no need to pack a lightsabre, the 99th Garrison Troopers will be raising money for Dream Flights, a charity which sends seriously ill children on the holiday of a lifetime.
Andrew added “There will be lots to do. We’ll have toys, collectables, costumes, props, models, lots of traders and a mini-funfair. My intention is to follow up with a comic con next year to coincide with the completion of the market ground, when we’d get some of the actors to attend.”
Andrew is staging the sci-fi day at the Market on Saturday September 26th and It's sure to be popular, as Star Wars 7 is coming out in December. May the force be with you!
