While it might have been a "galaxy far, far away", come May the 4th, "STAR WARS DAY" transcends unto Singapore with the STAR WARS DAY: MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU Festival, to take place at the F1 Pit Building on 4 & 5 May 2018 (as part of the global 'May the 4th' celebrations) - featuring a weekend of All Things Star Wars-themed happenings - from feature film screenings, to pyrotechnics displays, Kids Jedi Academy Lightsaber Workshop, STAR WARS RUN Singapore 2018, STAR WARS tribute band; "Dark Empire", and even a chance to Meet Albin Johnson and R2-KT (See below for full story). Curated by Esprimo and local fan collective #MAYTHE4THSG.

Folks can check in to www.starwarsrun.sg/festival for a full run down of activities and happenings to expect!

Keep a keen eye out (and ready wallet) for limited edition SW-themed clothed patches (see above image / 5 x designs to collect), resin collectibles (directly below) - with all profits benefitting the KKH Health Fund.

Local collective of "doodle-bandits" Band of Doodlers will be doodling "live" and offering up 3 large canvases for charity auction at the end of the festival. We've previously featured #StarWarsDay SG 2016 (below snap), so this is definitely something to look forward to, IMHO.

Also available would be live doodles on mini canvases (Limited to 200 pieces), Check out the art of BOD on their Instagram @bandofdoodlers, and of course featured here #onTOYSREVIL!
