VISITORS from a galaxy far, far away have arrived in Bromyard.

Star Wars fans can get up close to their favourite characters as C-3PO, Jar Jar Binks and R2-D2 have set up home in the Time Machine Museum in Bromyard.

The life-size models will be on show at the venue as its latest exhibition.

"They're great, C-3PO's eyes light up, and Jar Jar is huge, he's seven foot three," said museum owner Ted Glazzard. "We wanted to update our exhibits so chose Star Wars as it's very popular."

The museum, formerly the Teddy Bear and Toy Museum, has another new addition.

Visitors can now enjoy a cup of coffee and freshly made snacks and cakes after browsing the exhibits.

"We've just opened our coffee shop, which is decorated in the retro style, with 60s chrome and leather furniture," added Mr Glazzard.

"We do all kinds of coffees, from espressos to capuccinos and macchiatos."

The museum, in the Square, opens every day during the summer from 10.30am to 5pm. For more details call 01885 488329.
