Star Wars trilogy weekend confirmed for Forest of DeanPosted on 27th February 2015
Over Easter the force will be with the Forest of Dean after it was revealed that the three original Star Wars films will be shown at a drive-in cinema in Tidenham.
From Good Friday to Easter Sunday the National Diving and Activity Centre in Tidenham will host a special Star Wars event and this will feature a drive-in cinema for people to come and watch the famous films.
Forest of Dean cottages are set to be even busier than normal this Easter as the Star Wars-themed event is expected to attract large crowds over the three days.
Visitors to the event will not only be able to watch the three original films, but will also be able to meet over 20 characters from the films, such as Jedi, Biker Scouts, Darth Vader and Stormtroopers. Props and sets from the film will also be on show at the event.
The Forest of Dean was put in the limelight earlier this year when it was announced that Puzzlewood was used as a filming location for the new Star Wars film and this is believed to be behind the thinking for this event.
Tickets for the drive-in cinema cost £50 per car. To find out more information about the Star Wars Trilogy Weekend, click here.
