About this Event

Free entry to exhibition and museum!

On July 21st, 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 new exhibition at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery. Join us for special opening day activities to launch the new exhibition!

May The Toys Be With You is both a celebration of the now highly collectable 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!
