Star Wars Day at Forbidden Planet, Southampton

Forbidden Planet will be holding a special Star Wars Day at the Southampton Megastore on Saturday 23 October from 10:00 am at 24 Hanover Buildings, Southampton, SO14 1JU. (I suggest you check the time before turning up — the FP website gives two times, 10.00am and 10.00pm; I suspect the event starts in the morning).

There will be Stormtroopers from the 501st UK Garrison on hand to provide security and ensure good behaviour – and there will be plenty of opportunity for photographs and fun. They also have exclusive signed, bookplated editions of The Making Of The Empire Strikes Back – available nowhere else. There will be goody bags and prizes throughout the day; fantastic Star Wars toys to be won in a themed store bonanza that will bring the Force to a store near you. Check the FP website for full details.
