Forbidden Planet Leeds Launches New Expanded Shop

Forbidden Planet at 8 The HeadrowTo coincide with the celebration of its 20 anniversary, Forbidden Planet Leeds has today announced the launch of its new, expanded location at 8, The Headrow.

With the currently surging popularity of superheroes and all things geeky, Forbidden Planet Leeds has been carefully planning an expansion to allow for its ever-increasing market. The new shop will be throwing open its doors to the public on 22nd January, and a series of special events will take place throughout the following month.

On 8th February, Storm Troopers from the official Star Wars 501st UK Garrison are set to take over the building, giving visitors a chance to have their photo taken with the characters and, if they’re lucky enough to be in the first 100 people to make it through the door, to get their hands on an exclusive Forbidden Planet goodie bag. On 15th February, the store will play host to a special Kids’ Day, and on 22nd February, visitors are invited to attend dressed as their favourite characters for a huge cosplay event.

At a size of 2,800 square metres, and with plans to extend onto a second floor in April, Forbidden Planet Leeds will be the biggest shop of its kind in Yorkshire. It hopes to attract anyone interested in comics, manga, sci-fi and fantasy and TV and movie merchandise.
