SCORES of Jedis, Siths and Stormtroopers were out in force to celebrate one of the most beloved film franchises.

Packed into Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, film lovers dressed up as their favourite Star Wars characters.

Fans of all ages enjoyed the day of fun, which included the award-winning science communicator, rapper and co-author of The Science of Star Wars, Jon Chase, who performed a live show version of the book, exploring the science facts within this popular science fiction.

Young fans also got the opportunity to get their pictures taken with characters such as Darth Maul, Boba Fett and other characters.

And to top it all off, visitors got to take part in a range of space-themed challenges and activities that took place in the Invention Studio throughout the weekend.
