We are so happy to finally be able to share the details of our next show with you all…To commemorate Star Wars day ‘May the 4th’ FullCircle Gallery Leeds, The Hang Gang and Leeds Alternative Comics, have got together to host the ultimate celebration of the greatest films ever made!
Starting on Friday May the 4th from 6pm, FullCircle will be transformed into a gallery not so far far away, hosting not only a huge display of vintage Star Wars toys including over 100 carded figures and boxed vehicles, but a contemporary / lowbrow look at the Star Wars universe supplied by over 30 amazing artists including:
A Little Stranger
Hugh (Shug) Raine
Jon Paul Kaiser
Tom J Newell
All the art will be available to purchase on a first come first served basis and any remaining items will be available from the Hang Gang website after the exhibition ends. There will also be vintage collectibles available to purchase too, including loose & carded figures plus other rare gems. Live music will be supplied by the Cantina Band and the evening will culminate with a screening of Star Wars, watching this master piece on mass with a beer in your hand, what more could any fanboy ask for.
Fancy dress is not compulsory but feel free to don the best Star Wars get up and come as your favourite character, this is a celebration after all! And for those who are peckish there will be Star Wars inspired food and drinks available from the ‘Wookie Cookies’ cook book!
There will only be 100 tickets released for the opening party on Friday May the 4th and they are expected to sell out very quickly. If you want to secure your place they will be available from 12 noon on Friday 30th March from our store. Tickets for the Friday are priced at £10 each + 50p booking fee.
For those who miss out on the opening party, don’t panic! There is still plenty of chance to see the exhibition, FullCircle will be open 10am – 6pm on both the Saturday and Sunday and there will be screenings of Star Wars again on both days starting at 6pm.
Tickets to the exhibition on the Sat / Sun are £3 / £2 concessions and children.
To watch the film on Sat / Sun is an additional £5 / £4 concessions and children.
There are no pre-bookable tickets for the Sat / Sun, it’s pay on the door only.
