A very special Starchild event is happening on March 28th. This event is in memory of the lovely Rony Bridges who is dearly missed by all at Starchild.
As many of you know, Rony was an actor and playwright who was perhaps best known for his role as the Admiral in The Star Wars film – The Force Awakens.
Some of Rony’s friends are gathering together for a fun-filled day for all the family. Come meet the ‘Stars’ Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, Batman, Ghost Busters, Spiderman, Captain Jack Sparrow, Harry Potter and many more.
Some actors will be making guest appearances alongside professional costume characters. There will be a chance to get autographs and photographs with all your favourite characters.
This is your chance to be surrounded by your favourite costumed heroes, creatures and pop culture enthusiasts.
Kids of all ages are invited to dress up as their favourite sci-fi or cartoon characters – you could win a prize! Adults too!
Comic books, cartoons, toys, face painting, raffles, auctions, great photo opportunities,
themed cakes, drinks, raffles, games and so much more.
All this is happening to support Starchild to help us raise funds for the Sunflower Sanctuary in Memory of Rony.
There are some wonderful raffle prizes
