With the release of the much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens fast approaching (ie. tomorrow…) we thought we’d better jump on the bandwagon and provide all of you space-fantasy fans with activities to take part in ON TOP of going to watch the brand spanking new film! Did someone say Star Wars themed burgers? Oh yes we did! ? well, our motto is Hans Yolo after all…(it’s not at all, we just wanted to say that really badly…)
1. Star Wars Experience at Madame Tussauds
Star Wars at Madame Tussauds London is a unique, immersive experience featuring 16 of the most famous heroes and villains in scenes from some of the most iconic moments from the Star Wars universe. Walk-in sets capturing iconic moments from the popular Star Wars films lets you come face to face with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Yoda and Luke Skywalker, and take the controls in the flight deck of the Millennium Falcon. Prepare to be transported to that galaxy far, far away…and to get out your selfie sticks!

2. Jedi Menu, Haché
What happens when you meet a chef who is a huge Star Wars fan? This. The Jedi Menu at Haché: a fun and tasty homage to the movies, and a treat for all those who love ‘out-of-this-galaxy’ burgers. Burgers include the Hans Solo (Scotch beef steak burger topped with ‘out-of-this-universe’ crunchy peanut butter, smuggled mature melted Cheddar cheese and crispy smoked bacon served on a toasted brioche bun with red onion marmalade), and the Chewbacca (Scotch beef steak burger topped with slow roasted barbecued pulled pork with crispy pancetta, topped with a beer battered onion ring)…and we just can’t WAIT to try the Princess Leia. Available from Friday 18th until Sunday 20th of December.
3. Watch it in IMAX 15/70mm format at the Science Museum
The Science Museum’s IMAX Theatre is the only venue in Europe screening this film in IMAX 15/70mm format. Sequences expand vertically to give viewers a truly immersive experience, filling the entire screen and displaying 40% more of the image than can be seen in standard cinemas.

4. And finally…
