NSC: Return of the Garrison 2017, LEICESTER

Saturday 24 June 2017
Location : National Space Centre: Exploration Drive, LEICESTER, Leicestershire, LE4 5NS, United Kingdom
A staple of the UKG calendar - this is our 12th anniversary at the NSC! - this promises to be another great weekend at a fantastic venue to show off our costumes. We will be doing this alongside the Rebel Legion, R2 Builders Club, Galactic Academy and the RPB.

We will meet and greet the public, pose for photos and perform the ever popular Star Wars themed activities including the droid hunt.

There will be a march on the afternoon of both days, times to be confirmed.

Event times

The times given are the times we will be on site at the event but unfortunately this doesn't necessarily mean we will be available to meet you throughout the whole of this period. Our plan for the day is usually confirmed with the event organisers closer to the event or even on the day. We will also require refreshment breaks. You may be able to get more specific details from the event organisers themselves if you contact them for when we are scheduled to meet with the public.

Star Wars & Reel Icons costumers

This has been added to the event details to let you know what kind of costumers this event has requested i.e. Star Wars only, Reel Icons only or a mixture of costumers. With all our events, we cannot guarantee what costumers will be available to attend as we are all volunteers who do this in our spare time so it is always on a 'best endeavours' basis.


Unfortunately, sometimes our attendance at an event is cancelled. This is infrequent but can happen for a variety of reasons including the event itself being cancelled or rescheduled by the organiser, inclement weather, costumers that are within the locale of that event being unavailable or ill. We recommend that you check back regularly with this calendar to ensure our attendance at a particular event is still scheduled.
