Take the first Luke at the Star Wars conclusion

28 November 2019

A fundraiser from a galaxy far, far away will bring the forces of good to bear on the Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund.

The third and final instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy – The Rise of Skywalker – is coming to the Civic Theatre on Thursday, December 19 at 6.30pm.

The conclusion of the epic trilogy and the nine-part Skywalker Saga will premiere at a Star Wars Fundraiser Night to raise money for the scholarship fund.

Gunnedah Shire Council Cultural Precinct Team Leader Lauren Mackley said the screening of the final episode of the epic series would be an event to remember.

“Whether you’re a Star Wars rookie or a Wookiee, The Rise of Skywalker is something you won’t want to miss,” Ms Mackley said.

“Star Wars fans span the generations and all of them are welcome at this special event.

“This is a great opportunity to break out your inner Chewbacca, Princess Leia or Poe Dameron. Get dressed up in the Star Wars theme and join in the fun. There will be themed food and prizes for the best dressed Star Wars fans and a lucky door prize.”

The cost of the premiere is $25 which will help raise funds for the Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund, a program which helps young Gunnedah Shire residents on their journey to tertiary education.
