Ards Shopping Centre to go to the Dark Side this Father’s Day Weekend

Ards 02

Does your Father have what it takes to be a Jedi?

Is the Force with you?

Do you often feel like your family is from another Galaxy?


If so, Ards Shopping Centre has the event for you, with the arrival of the highly anticipated Father’s Day ‘Force Training Academy’ with The Emerald Garrison this Saturday.

Shoppers of all ages can enroll in the Academy, where the Jedi Master and his assistants will train Jedi’s in the art of the light saber technique, with a certificate being awarded to Padawans at the end of the training.

The Jedi Master will then ask Padawans to take the “Jedi Oath” and give them the skills to defeat the Dark Side and win the day.

The academy classes last fifteen minutes and will run on Saturday 14th June from 12pm to 4pm, with spaces being be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The event is free of charge with the local branch of the Guide Dogs for the Blind benefiting from the Emerald Garrison’s charity work.
