The Force was strong in Worksop at the weekend as Jawa, Darth Maul and Darth Vader descended on Bridge Street to mark the release of the new Star Wars film.

Fans of the sci-fi franchise were delighted when the characters stopped off at Action Hero Parties on their way to fight for the future of the galaxy on Saturday, December 19.

Excited cinema-goers at The Savoy also got the chance to meet Kyloren, Reyjo, a Jedi and a Tuskian Raider before watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was released last week.

David Graham, manager at Action Hero Parties, said: “I am a bit of a Star Wars geek myself, so I had great fun dressing up as Darth Vader in the run-up to the new film. We had an amazing reaction what with Star Wars being so popular at the moment. We’re even holding a Jedi training school for kids in February 2016.”

Action Hero Parties opened their store, based on 62a Bridge Street, in November. The company holds parties for children featuring characters such as Spiderman, Batman and Disney princesses.
