May the force be with you in these competitions

Star Wars fans are in for a double treat at the forthcoming Matlock Festival.

Not only will there be a Star Wars-themed drawing competition, but there is also to be a Star Wars fancy dress competition on the final day of the festival, as part of an all-day event to be held at the town’s Hall Leys Park.

Dress as your favourite Star Wars character and you could be in the running to win the top prize of a family tickets to Matlock Bath-based theme park Gullivers Kingdom.

In addition, the second competition wants you to draw your favourite Star Wars character, in order to win a Star Wars-themed prize.

A competition area is to be set up in the park including a drawing tent with paper available so entries can be drawn and entered into the competition on the day.

Judging for both the fancy dress and the drawing competitions will be started at 2pm on Sunday, July 21.
