The event was organised as part of the national Heritage Open Day along with a two-week Heritage Festival in the town.

Around 150 people went along to the Centenary Green at the museum to meet Luke Skywalker, Darth Vaider, Princess Leia and Obi Wan Kenobi.

Youngsters were given the chance to sit in the plane along with dressing up as their favourite characters.

One of the people behind the event is Lottie Arnill.
