The Force is strong at Gloucester Library


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it was easy to keep the family entertained for free. Now you can enjoy some quality time that doesn’t cost the Empire, thanks to Gloucester library.

This Saturday 20th May, Gloucester Library will host a free Star Wars Family Fun Day from 11am to 2pm. Families are invited to meet a group of Storm Troopers; design a new Star Wars character and take part in competitions to win fantastic Star Wars prizes; plus model making, games and more.

The action packed day is part of Gloucestershire’s three year Art of Libraries project: future events at Gloucester Library include story telling and illustration, performance and beatboxing.

The Art of Libraries is bringing a touch of creative magic to the county’s libraries, celebrating reading and the enjoyment of storytelling through a range of art forms, opening libraries up as a space for imagination and experimentation.

To book your free place on the Star Wars day, visit or contact Gloucester Library on 01452 426973 or through Eventbrite:

Jane Everiss, head of libraries at Gloucestershire County Council said: “Over the next three years the Art of Libraries project will offer residents across the county  the chance to discover a world of imagination and creativity in their local libraries.

“Not only does this project mean free events for families to enjoy together, the Arts of Libraries expands Gloucestershire’s cultural offering and encourages future generations of readers to discover the magic of libraries.”
