Competition: The force is strong at Brading Roman Villa

March 16th, from a galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars…  For the first time ever on the Isle of Wight, the Galactic Empire meets the Roman Empire!

From X-Wing Fighters to the iconic lightsabers, Star Wars’ fantastical designs have fired our imaginations and stamped their place on our cultural landscape and now you can get up close to one of the UK’s finest collections of original posters and vintage toys in an exhibition brought to you by Brading Roman Villa.

For little kids and ‘big kids’ alike, May The Toys Be With You 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!

Back when the movie Star Wars broke box office records in 1977 no one could have predicted that the merchandising would go on to earn even more than the film itself.

To celebrate the launch, Brading Roman Villa is giving you, and your family, the opportunity to open the exhibition. They also have family tickets and Star Wars Galactic Atlas to give away.

To be in with a chance of winning, complete the classic line spoken by Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope.
