X-Wings banned from the town centre as Harborough gets a Star Wars-inspired makeover
IT MAY have happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but Star Wars has come to Harborough after street-signs inspired by the blockbuster were put up around town.
Signs warning ‘No X-Wings’, advising motorists to look out for Jawas crossing St Mary’s Road and pointing people in the direction of the cloud-city of Bespin and the spaceport Mos Eisley were placed around the town centre.
There was even an R2-D2 near Sainsbury’s in St Mary’s Place.
A sign on the traffic lights in the St Mary’s Road/Northampton Road junction shows a picture of an AT-AT and says: Think! Tow cables, go for the legs, in a reference to the famous scene from The Empire Strikes Back.
Another sign indicates the USS Enterprise from Star Trek is banned from the town centre.
It is unclear who put up the signs or why.
