September 2018~ An Evening With Anthony Daniels

An Evening with Anthony Daniels took place at The Chickenshed Theatre on Saturday 8th September 2018. It was a charity event with all funds raised going to Chickenshed.

The evening began with Anthony retelling the story of how he got the part of C-3PO, after initially turning down a request by ‘some American’ filmmaker. He went on to talk about how the costume was made, the problems he encountered and the improvements made of the years.

The evening continued in such a fashion with Anthony telling stories from his time on all the Star Wars films as well as discussion on spin-offs such as the animated show ‘Droids’, an anti-smoking commercial he wrote and more recent activities such as the Star Wars LEGO cartoons. There was also some discussion on merchandise including some very strange items! The whole evening was accompanied by behind the scenes images and videos. Some never seen before.

There was a lot of audience interaction and the evening ended with a raffle, autograph session and photo opportunity. All proceeds again went to Chickenshed.

Limited edition large-size trading cards were sold for £5 each and it was these that Anthony signed. Only 200 were made and luckily for me not everyone wanted one so I was able to buy extra for my brother and nephews.
