A must-see exhibition of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters
From a galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars and the silver screen – one of the UK’s finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters is going on display in a stunning exhibition brought to you by Museums Worcestershire.
May The Toys Be With You is both a celebration of the now highly collectible vintage toy line and also of the iconic design work and art of the Star Wars movies. From X-Wing Fighters to lightsabers, these fantastical designs have fired our imaginations and stamped their place on our cultural landscape. For little kids and ‘big kids’ alike this is an unmissable opportunity to view many rarely seen Star Wars treasures, and young Jedi may even have an opportunity to dress up and wield a lightsaber themselves!
Museum After Hours – Friday 16 August, 5.30 – 8pm, Free entry
Enjoy after-hours access to the exhibition, with space-related cocktails and perhaps even some extra-terrestrial goings on!
