Star Wars is set to strike the Market Vaults on Saturday at a special sci-fi event called “May the Vaults be With You”.
The event, starting at 11am, is being co-organised by a number of the vaults traders and will feature Stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters for photo opportunities, raising money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
There will also be a costume competition for under 16s and over 16s, activities run by Castle Community Crafts and various trading stalls.
Dax Smith, event organiser and owner of Dax’s Toys, said: “The Star Wars franchise has a tremendous following and fan base.
“However, after the huge success of the first Sci-Fi Scarborough, it inspired me to get the vaults involved with the local sci-fi, cosplay and comic scene, as I know there are not many venues for everyone.”
Participating shops including Dax’s Toys, Oggy’s World, Holmes 2 Homes and Outlaw Merchandise will join the fun by offering discounts to fans who wear Star Wars themed clothes or costumes during the event. Prizes will be given to the best Star Wars themed costume of the day and the traders encourages the public to participate.
Oggy’s World Owner, Tony Lawrence said, “We are excited to hold our first sci-fi event and hope to expand upon it for the next one.
“Another reason to host such events is to bring the vaults the attention it deserves.”
Tony is working on the Market Vaults very own magazine-come-comic, which will be previewed on the day and the first issue will be available at future events.
