SW Parade & Gala - Sunday 11 June - South Yorkshire

Postby penistonegala » Sat Jun 03, 2017 8:08 pm

Just a quick reminder about our Star Wars inspired gala (Penistone, South Yorkshire, UK) next weekend - Sunday 11 June 2017.

We are having loads of Star Wars floats passing through the centre of town at 12pm (designed by local schools etc). And we're then having the Gala on the showfield, with a marquee and food/drink stalls. The event will run till around 4:30pm.

Our arena acts include Ludo Sports giving a four-man Light Sabre display (and opportunity for young padawans to learn the basics), local dance groups and cheer leaders strutting their stuff in Star Wars fancy dress and a medieval re-enactment of some of Star Wars for us. We will be filling the marquee with Star Wars inspired games for kids between 2pm and 3pm (Destroy the Deathstar high riser, Nerf Gun Stormtrooper training, Navigate through Hyperspace large wire buzzer game, make your own light sabre etc). Outside we'll have giant inflatable "light sabre" duels (a la Gladiators) for the adults and bouncy hopper Xwing races.

We are also hosting a tournament to win the Penistone Cup - a Star Wars version Total Wipeout's "Last Man Standing" game. We're inviting teams of up to 8 to take part in Star Wars fancy dress. To register, please see http://www.galastrikesback.co.uk/tournament

There will be numerous Stormtroopers attending in full costume and several of the stalls are going to be Star Wars themed (e.g. Yoda Yoga classes, enjoy a burger from the Grillenium Falcon, etc). We'll even have the Original Stormtrooper, Chris Bunn, attending to sign autographs.

There will also be all your typical Gala stalls and fun fair rides. It should be a day to remember!

Or feel free to make a weekend of it, and join us for Friday's Comedy In A Tent (Laugh It Up Fuzzball!), Saturday's colour run & obstacle course and family music festival, or Saturday night's Take That and Olly Murs tribute bands. For full details please see http://www.galastrikesback.co.uk
