Having finally arrived home and unpacked we can now reflect on what a terrific weekend we had. We are completely exhausted but buzzing, it was truly fantastic seeing everyone again and meeting new faces. The event was huge, as was the turnout and queues. Compared to Celebration Europe 2007 things had grown massively. In 2007 we knew 3 people and in 2016 we are unable to count the number of faces we recognised or those that recognised us. It was truly inspiring.

During the event we were lucky enough to display three of our character costumes alongside the UK 501st Garrison. On show we had our Darth Maul, Emperor and Boushh. We were also lucky enough to have our Biker Boushh lid on display and up for auction on the Biker Scout Helmet Project stand for Make A Wish UK. Meeting up with the UKG, Rebel Legion and guys from the RPF was great. A big thank you for inviting us along to take part.

It was also nice to see some of our costumes parading the event. We managed to have photos with several of our Jedi and Imperial Officers. Above are some photos and some of the lucky ones managed to get photos with Mark Hamill, congratulations guys!
