The UK Garrison was formed in 2000 and has gone on to become one of the foremost Star Wars costuming groups in the UK. We are a part of the constantly growing 501st Legion, itself the largest costuming organisation in the world.
We are renowned for our high standard 'movie accurate' costumes, professionalism and dedication to fundraising for charity. Our goal to be the very best at what we do has been reached and surpassed enabling us to be present at the highest level of Star Wars related events and work with some of the biggest names in the Star Wars industry.
