The themed event, taking place on Saturday 4 June, will allow shoppers to meet and have their photos taken with some of the film franchise’s most iconic characters.
Star Wars fancy dress competition- Win £50
Visitors are encouraged to dress up in their best Star Wars costumes for a fancy dress competition. The characters will judge entrants of all ages and the winner will receive a £50 prize to spend in the centre. Four runners-up will also be rewarded for their efforts with their very own lightsaber.
Centre manager Rikki Teml said: “This is the first event of its kind here in Cwmbran and we’re really looking forward to seeing all of the different costumes people create for the competition. Keep an eye out for roaming characters around the centre whilst you’re doing your shopping – and may the force be with you!”
Special discounts on the day
Some of the centre’s retailers will also be having special discounts on the day of the event, including Sin City Comics, who will be offering 10 per cent off all Star Wars items.
What time are the Stormtroopers and their companions in Cwmbran Shopping?
The Stormtroopers and their companions will be around the centre from 11am until 3pm on Saturday 4 June. The fancy dress competition will take place at 2pm on Monmouth Walk.
