In September 2017, Dave Prowse announced he would no longer be attending UK conventions from January 2018. This followed an announcement a year earlier in October 2016 when he stopped international convention appearances.
Now, just one month later, Dave Prowse has had to move forward his retirement, and bow out of all future conventions.One final show has been put together to honour Dave. The event is Empire Day, and Dave is able to attend as it is being held at the Feltham Assembly Hall in London close to his home.
Dave has been a regular at conventions in the UK and worldwide for many years. Fans show up in awe of meeting ‘Darth Vader’, and he never disappoints. The convention circuit will not be the same without Dave’s presence, and he will be greatly missed by all.
