St Helens was taken over by the Dark Side as several of Darth Vader’s Stormtroopers assembled in the town centre as part of a special Star Wars Day event.

Courtesy of Star Wars based Costume Group, 99th Garrison, the Stormtroopers, accompanied by a Shadow and Sand trooper roamed around Church Square for most of the day on Sunday, posing for pictures with Star Wars fans young and old, before heading over to St Helens town hall for a bit of celebrity arrows!

A packed town hall assembly room couldn’t quite believe their eyes as St Helens funny man Johnny Vegas was walked to the oche ahead of his Bartons Pickles Celebrity Darts Challenge match, guided by one of Lord Vader’s foot soldiers.
