So, at the weekend, (Sat 1st July) yes the 1st of July, the first day of the SEVENTH MONTH of the year! Seriously 2017, slooooww dowwn. Basically we went to the 02 for the Star Wars: identities exhibition as my husband Tim loves Star wars and its his birthday next week.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. As someone who is only now watching the Star Wars films properly I found it really interesting and a fun experience.
There were over 100 pieces that were used in the actual Star Wars films, costumes, droids, models, to look at as well as an accompanying audio guide.
You also got given a wristband at the start and you build your own Star Wars character and shape their identity using it. You make choices about their species, home planet, job, personality etc and this creates your character for you.
Here is Tim’s:
Here is mine:
This was so much fun and I remembered alot more about the film’s than I though I would.
Tim had a great time which is the most important thing ♡
After we had been to the exhibit we headed to get some food (also in the 02) there is such a good selection of restaurants in there to choose from and because we had been to the exhibit we got 25% off our food bill, winner!
We went to Zizzis and had a delicious Italian feast.
For starters Tim had this A-maz-ING bruschetta with creamy mozzarella, tomatoes & basil pesto 👌
I had one of my favourite starters, calamari (V.fitting after my character choice haha)
Tim had a classic Bolognese for his main, which was so rich and delicious. (Yup, I stole a sneaky taste, I’m not the only one who does that am I? I mean what’s mine is yours right! 😂)
I had a delicious mushroom tortelloni dish in a creamy sauce.
We shared their new tomato, basil & mozzerella bread 👌
We love having days out for a birthday, I love receiving gifts people have chosen for me but there’s something lovely about having experiences and making memories too.
Definatly worth a look for all you Star Wars fans 👍
Until next time,
