We would like to cordially welcome you to the official website of the Echo Base Foundation! Or rather: welcome back. For after a period of over ten years we are back. This time not as a Star Wars fan club, but as an organisation fully dedicated to organising Star Wars themed events with the goal of raising moneys for charities.
This year marks the fortieth anniversary of Star Wars. On October 13th, 1977 both the European and Dutch premier took place in the Rembrandt Theater in Arnhem. Two months after that, on December 15th, 1977, the movie went in roulation.
How fitting is it to have the Echo Base Charity Con take place on Saturday, December 16th, 2017, forty years after that special date as well as the first weekend that the newest episode, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, can be seen in cinemas. This website provides you with information about entry tickets, special guest, activities, the charity and much more. So do have a look around. And stay informed through our social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
We hope to see you on December 16th!
Patrick, Leo en Wiebe
Team Echo Base
