When: 1 May to 5 May

The event: Photography sessions for the little ones who love Star Wars. The current offer includes a framed A4 print and two 8×6 prints.

Speaking about the sessions, a spokesperson for the company stated: “We started it this year as we decided in January to do a fun discount session every month for our regular clients and to encourage new clients. The Star Wars idea was a funny one, we came up with it as we wanted to have something a little different in our calendar options; we had done superhero and princess sessions previously, but had not tried more defined genres and May the 4th was a perfect time to experiment. We have received a lot of interest in the few days it has been available.”
