In October, go to W5 you will!


Last year I dragged my family along to W5 to visit a place Long ago in a galaxy far, far away............

And it is that time again. Yup, Emerald Garrison (Invasion Belfast) are creating another Imperial outpost in the Titanic Quarter. And I can not wait. You can check them out on Facebook too.

The stormtroopers will descend upon Belfast on Saturday 2 October and Sunday 3 October and highly recommend a visit.

Last year I got to meet the real Darth Vader (David Prowse) who, for those old enough to remember, was also the Green Cross Code man.  He was a wonderful man, very friendly and easy to get on with.  I also got to meet Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) who were real stars as well.  The whole set up was absolutely amazing and a great day out. 

I also think my wife may have hired Boba Fett to hunt me down so she could claim the life insurance last year. 



If you can get, go.  You will not regret it at all.  If you can't then your lack of faith is disturbing.

This year sees the man who Tunes took the mickey out off attending the event.  Richard LeParmentier (Admiral Motti) was the man who made Darth Vader utter those immortal words before having a go at 'squishing his head'.  Pity Admiral Motti forgot about that shoddy workmanship that left a little exhaust shaft open.  He should have phoned 'On your behalf'.

This is the Star Wars event you are looking for!


David Prowse, the gentle Sith. Lord.
