Started in 2008, the Star Wars Fan Fun Day is an event for Star Wars fans by Star Wars fans. Held at Burnley Football Club, the event has grown from strength to strength, with last years fun day seeing attendance rise to 2000 people (which given the size of the facilities at Burnley FC is a heck of a lot of people) and best of all, it’s an event enjoyed by both die hard fans and families alike – plus it has raised thousands of pounds for charity.
This years guest list has been announced and includes:
- Dave Prowse (Darth Vader)
- Kenny Baker (R2D2)
- Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar)
- Michael Carter (Bib Fortuna)
- Tim Dry (Whippid)
- Sean Crawford (Yak Face)
- Jerome Blake (Orn Free Taa)
- Lewis MacLeod (Sebulba)
- John Morton (Dak Ralter)
- Stephen Costantino (Gammorean Guard)
- Bonnie Piesse (Beru Whitesun)
