Some people dance around Maypoles or enjoy a day-trip to the seaside, if you’re a film fan however the Bank Holiday Weekend is all about May The Fourth or National Star Wars Day!
Yorkshire-based special events company, Hullywood Entertainment will be hosting another of their famous Movie Buffs Collectors Fairs in the airy atrium of Prospect Shopping Centre (Kingston upon Hull, UK) on Saturday 4th May from 10am – 4pm. Special guest, Ian Whyte – all seven-foot one of him – will be meeting guests and signing autographs. Ian played the iconic Predator in Aliens vs. Predator (2004) and The Space Jockey in franchise revival Prometheus (2012). Genre fans will also know him from Clash Of The Titans (2010) Harry Potter (2005) and his first dramatic role as Gregor Clegane “The Mountain That Rides” in HBO’s award-winning TV Show, Game Of Thrones.
Britain’s Got Talent favourite, The Entertainer-nator – who reached the live semi-finals with his Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation – will also be putting in an appearance, releasing his “Keith Lemon Clone” and treating fans to a few new characters.
As well as the usual specialist stalls selling Movie, TV, Sci-Fi and Fantasy collectibles and memorabilia there will be opportunities to take photographs with a Back To The Future Replica DeLorean and a scaled-down Tim Burton style Batmobile complete with Hullywood Entertainment’s own Mini-Joker. You can get up close and personal with an amazing Captain Jack Sparrow Lookalike-Impersonator and view a variety of rare movie-themed props and exhibits.
Ian Whyte will be supported by The UK Predators costume group. The UK Garrison will be attending with a variety of costumed characters from the world of movies, games and television and, if you’re experiencing any problems with the paranormal, you’ll be able to consult costumers from the UK Ghostbusters.
Attending Movie Buffs: May The Fourth in fancy dress is positively encouraged. Children who attend the event in Star Wars themed costumes will gain free entry and there will be plenty of folk from the Hull Cosplayers group to show you how it’s done.
The event marks the fifth anniversary of Hullywood Entertainment’s launch and The Force is sure to be with them!
