WHY DO KIDS HAVE ALL THE FUN? - APRIL 1ST - 11.13AM
Just a perfect, perfect start to the day.
And especially a Saturday - learning how to speak droid with R2-D2 and how to draw a Wookie properly (they can after after all get very, very touchy about their looks…).
So you won’t be surprised to learn this was an event with a Star Wars theme, and as such, you won’t be surprised to learn either that its audience were young, (about 5 to 12), outrageously enthusiastic and accompanied by doting dads and grandparents keen to score ‘brownie’ points.
Hosted by JAKe, a Star Wars illustrator and Tom Huddleston, an author for the ‘Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space’ series, the excitement was palpable; in fact, made even more so when a few miniature Darth Vaders proudly walked in holding hands with their mums.
Staged at Oxford’s wonderful Story Museum in Pembroke Street, it was a cracking event; laugh-out-loud funny, genuinely informative and buzzing with the kind of visceral vibe only children can provide.
I ABSOLUTELY BLOODY LOVED IT!!!!!!!!! (great disabled facilities too)
