On Thursday, July 14th, the excitement of Star Wars Celebration Europe swept into the halls of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) in the form of special screenings, games, surprises from Star Wars talent, and beloved costumed character appearances. The event was sponsored by Star Wars: Force For Change and LEGO, Royal Mail, and DK Publishing all made special contributions to the event.
Between “Force training” sessions and meet & greets with Star Wars Rebels and The Force Awakens talent, the children and families of GOSH began contributing to a collective mosaic that was completed just 7 miles away by children in the Family Area of Star Wars Celebration Europe.
Made up of 260 individual pieces, young fans and families at GOSH and Star Wars Celebration decorated their unique wooden square to place into the mosaic. The final product will be displayed inside GOSH and will serve as a reminder of the collaborative Star Wars community and the amazing piece of art that the patients were able to create on July 14th.
