With the next chapter in the Star Wars series being released in cinemas today, Friday, December 15, it is the perfect time to celebrate with a one-off sci-fi event.

The Havering Sci-Fi Convention will take place at YMCA Thames Gateway, Rush Green Road, Romford, tomorrow (Sat), from 10am-4pm with tickets for adults priced at £5 and £2 per child.

Guests such as the UK’s smallest man Michael Henbury, who has starred in Harry Potter and Star Wars, actor Ross Mullan from Game of Thrones and Dr Who, and Marolyn Turk, who has appeared both in Star Wars and James Bond, will be there on the day.

There will also be plenty of memorabilia and gifts on sale at the event.

Money raised will go towards the borough’s mental health charity Havering Mind.
