By fans for the fans, May The 4th SG presents a myriad of activities including Star Wars documentary screening and special appearances by 501st Legion Singapore Garrison and FightSaber Singapore. 

Expect nothing short of epic from the programme line-up that will reminiscence, revive and honour the 37 year-old film series.

Catherine Lim, brand manager of Hasbro Singapore says, “I am definitely bringing my kids to support the event.” Event organisers from Maythe4th.SG, Hansen Khoo and Jeffrey Koh of FLABSLAB, promise that audiences will be seeing some Star Wars items for the first time at the event and this is just a lead-up to a bigger and highly anticipated event in 2015 for the new Star Wars movie in the second half of 2015. 

 Supported by the National Library Board of Singapore, May The 4th will be held at the Jurong Regional Library on May 4th 2014, Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm.
