There is going to be an awakening in Lisburn this weekend as Star Wars fans gather for the country’s ‘largest ever’ fan convention.

The Emerald Garrison and Eikon Exhibition Centre will be bringing Star Wars to life in a way that that amuses, entertains and educates at the award-winning family show, Invasion N.I. The unofficial fan event takes place on February 18 and 19 at Eikon Exhibition Centre and is being run in aid of Make-A-Wish UK.
