In our latest costuming feature we meet Joe Versku from the U.K. Garrison. Here Joe tells us what first brought him into costuming the appeal of Star Wars and how he found a Star Wars fan in Farscape of all places....Intrigued? Read On. Joe thanks for talking to the Time Warriors today. Can you tell us about yourself?
In 2012 the UK Garrison attended hundreds of charity events around the country bringing with them some of that UKG magic that hopefully helped to increase the funds raised at each event. In between those troops we also managed to attend many corporate, marketing and promotional events that raised an additional amazing £49,000 for our own nominated charities.
In between the dozens of extremely enjoyable smaller events that the UKG attends every year, we also take part in a few much larger events that can be 2 or sometimes even 3 days long. It is at these larger events that the UKG comes out in force and can be seen at its glorious best. Following is a list of the BIG events planned so far this year but for a full and up-to-date list of all events don’t forget to regularly check the UKG Events Calendar.
Star Wars Celebration is a periodic fan gathering organised by Lucasfilm to bring fans of all ages together from all over the world to celebrate all things Star Wars. The next event will be Star Wars Celebration Europe II and will be held 26-28 July 2013 in Essen, Germany.
Variety, the Children's Charity treated over 60 children to a special Star Wars themed party at Planet Hollywood, London.
