Family from Bradley Stoke creates 'Star Wars Day' tribute during the coronavirus lockdown

A family in Bradley Stoke near Bristol have turned the outside of their house into a tribute to Star Wars as part of a worldwide celebration of the film franchise.

Today (May 4) is known as Star Wars Day and the Palmers have taken the traditional "May the fourth be with you" greeting to the max.

Finley, Noah and Willis Palmer have been taking breaks from their home schooling studies to re-enact scenes from the popular movie franchise outside their Sherbourne Avenue home.

The outside of their house is a tribute to the blockbuster series. Star Wars characters including Yoda, a clone trooper, a tiny R2-D2, and a number of light sabres all feature in the Palmers' display.

The boy's grandmother, Margaret Stewart is very proud of their endeavour, which is proving quite a sensation in the South Gloucestershire town and a distraction during COVID-19.

The Palmers hope it will cheer up passers-by during the lockdown.
