UK premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Wed, 16/12/2015

Wednesday 16 November 2015 will see the European premiere of the new film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to be held in Leicester Square at the Odeon, Empire, and VUE cinemas. 

Large crowds are expected, and a crowd wristband system will be operated for the premiere to help mitigate this. 

Organisers have advised fans to visit Leicester Square before 12pm noon on the 16 December in order to be given a numbered wristband.  Fans can leave Leicester Square after collecting their wristband, and return from 12pm to access the crowd space behind the barriers. 

Once all available wristbands are gone, fans will be notified via the following social media channels on Twitter and Facebook:

Twitter: @StarWarsUK
FB: Facebook/StarWarsUK

Westminster City Council and Disney advise fans against travelling to Leicester Square on the day of the event if they are not in possession of a numbered crowd wristband, as there will be no other space to view the premiere.  For more information about the premiere please visit Star Wars UK 

If you do not have a wristband you will not be able to see anything at the premiere. Instead you can watch the premiere live online from 5.15pm on the 16 December at Star Wars Facebook page
