Adding star quality to Auld Reekie

Ever wanted to see Star Wars memorabilia up close and personal? Well The Royal Bank of Scotland is making your dreams come true. As Yoda would say: “Sponsoring an exhibition, they are.”

Admittedly not a brand generally associated with cool, the bank is nevertheless sponsoring the exhibition at Edinburgh’s City Art Centre in March.

The event includes George Lucas drawings, and costumes worn by a variety of characters including Darth Vadar and Darth Maul, who are only slightly scarier than your average bank manager.

Ian Bell, senior manager for The Royal Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh, says he expects enthusiasts “to come from as far afield as Aberdeen”. Nice to know that Scotland is shedding its parochial mentality.
