AN exhibition of memorabilia celebrating the history of the Star Wars films has opened in Enfield.

The exhibition was the brainchild of Star Wars aficionado Joe Robinson, who has loaned much of his private collection of artefacts to the Dugdale Centre.

Speaking at last night’s launch party, he said: “This not only came about through my love for Star Wars but also because I love local history.

“It’s our history, whether it’s Roman artefacts or the living history which can disappear, and I think that’s something important to celebrate.”

The exhibition, which is open on weekdays from 11am to 4pm from today until May 4 next year, includes a treasure trove of Star Wars posters, collectibles, costumes, and toys.

The exhibition also ties into the history of cinema in Enfield, and includes a short film produced by pupils from Chace Community School.

Mayor of Enfield Councillor Christiana During officially opened the exhibition, saying: “This exhibition enhances our history.

“I remember all the fuss about Star Wars in the 1970s, and it is good to see we have sustained something of our past, our history, and how much we value it.”
