People could not believe their eyes when they spotted Stormtroopers from Star Wars at a St Albans pottery painting studio last weekend.

Staff from Pots of Art in Holywell Hill dressed as fictional villains and comic book characters to help raise more than £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

On Saturday customers also came along in superhero costumes to show their support and take part in a range of fundraising activities.

Manager Amanda Allen said: “On the day traffic on Holywell Hill came to a standstill as Stormtroopers posed and waved at passersby.

“People were unable to walk past the shop without either having their photos taken or joining in with the fun.”
