It’s Star Wars Day and we are looking back on the times when South Tyneside got into the spirit of the film phenomenon.
We’ve got a Star Wars charity day at Cineworld, a scifair at South Shields museum and a sci-fi event at Hebburn Community Association for you to enjoy.
Question is, were you there when these photos were taken? The only way to find out is by joining us on a journey back in time.
After all, the Force runs strong in these retro photos.
