A new addition this year was The Force Festival when Petersfield became a Star Wars haven! The 501st Legion came to town in full Star Wars costumes for you to see and interact with as well as the opportunity to have your photograph taken with the land speeder from Star Wars for a small donation to Round Table Children’s Wish charity.
