Look, it's not us having a pop at the lovable lefthanded art-speccies. An Apple shop has broken their cover by inviting murderous space peer, helmet lover and all-round bad egg Darth Vader to attend an Apple event this weekend.

A Cheltenham Apple reseller by the name of Western Computer is inviting the neck-stretching Lord along to host this weekend's Apple iLife roadshow at the Beechwood shopping centre. The event runs between 10am and 4pm tomorrow, Saturday 16 September. Those on the side of good are advised to bring a light sabre. Camp robots and tiny, aged men of insecure syntax may also come in handy.

Mac experts will be available to show visitors how iLife 06 can help them print and edit digital photos. They'll also be demonstrating how to create and print photo albums and calendars. They'll be showing off the latest Apple products too, at the end of a big week of announcements for the company.

The first five customers to purchase selected Apple products will win either an iPod shuffle, a notebook case or a £15 iTunes card. Customers at the event who present a picture of them beside Darth Vader during the next 30 days when buying a Mac will receive a £40 Western Gift Voucher to spend on software or accessories in the future. But first they’ll have to avoid offending Lord Vader in order to survive said 30 days.

May the Force be with you.
