The hottest dinner ticket in town next week hails from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Star Wars fans have the chance to attend a glitzy three-course meal on 2 February at the Park Lane Hilton, as the countdown to the release of The Phantom Menace in 3D begins.

Celebrity guests including Star Wars creator George Lucas will attend the event to play a giant themed quiz.

As part of the countdown, City A.M. is giving readers the chance to win a training session with lightsaber guru Nic Gillard, stunt co-ordinator from the Star Wars films. Gillard, who was Mark Hamill’s stunt double in Return of the Jedi, will teach you how to use the force against some real life (ish) Stormtroopers. You will then get the chance to test your new skills against City A.M.’s Geek Speak columnist Steve Dinneen.

For a chance to win the training session, email the name of the name of Nic Gillard’s cameo part in Revenge of the Sith to steve.dinneen@cityam.com or send a Twitter DM to @Steve_Dinneen. Individual dinner tickets are £245 and tables for 12 start at £2,940. For bookings and further information contact Fireball on: 020 8704 4141 or go to starwarscharitydinner.com
