Tickets for Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023 will go on sale later this week, but you’ll need deep pockets to attend.
Next year’s official Star Wars convention will take place at London’s ExCel Centre from April 7 to 10, and it seems destined to feature at least a couple of LEGO reveals. At this year’s event, the LEGO Group unveiled 75335 BD-1 and 75338 Ambush on Ferrix, gave us our first glimpse at the latest LEGO Star Wars advent calendar, and announced a brand new Disney+ special, LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation.
If you want to be on the ground floor for any LEGO-related panels at Star Wars Celebration 2023, you’ll need to be ready when tickets go on sale later this week. Four-day passes for this year’s convention sold out within an hour, while the VIP ‘Jedi Master’ tickets were gone within seconds. There’s no guarantee the same will happen for an event not based in California, but best not run the risk.
All tickets for Star Wars Celebration 2023 will go on sale on June 30 at 5pm UK time. Single-day passes are £65 each for adults and £33 each for kids; a four-day pass is £159 for adults and £61 for kids; and the VIP ‘Jedi Master’ ticket – which includes early entry on all four days, guaranteed admission to Celebration stage panels, a talent meet-and-greet and more – is a cool £795.
For comparison, three-day passes for Star Wars Celebration 2016 – the last time it was held in Europe – were just £70 each, or only £5 more than a single day pass for 2023’s event. The Jedi Master pass, meanwhile, was ‘only’ £350 in 2016 – less than half the price of this year’s ticket. Those inflated costs could prevent tickets from selling out quite as quickly this time round, but it’s impossible to say at the minute.
If you want the best chance of securing tickets for next year’s convention, make sure to head to the Star Wars Celebration ticket page at 5pm on Friday.
