The action-packed day immersed visitors in a world of silver screen fantasy, allowing them to marvel at a collection of themed displays, including Dr Who’s Tardis and Stars Wars props and costumes.

Organiser of Stars & Cars Colin Wilby said about 2,000 people showed up on Sunday. He said:“We just want to thank everyone for their support, for all the hard work and for turning up to raise money for Derian House Children’s Hospice.“

Stars & Cars Events is a not-for-profit organisation supporting the Chorley-based hospice. It is made up of a group of professional movie costumers who fundraise to help with the care and support that the hospice provides to children with life threatening illnesses.
