About Us



The 5th Legion is a Star Wars costuming group offering a free service for charities needing to raise funds for themselves or to benefit others.   Our group started from humble beginnings in February 2018, with 5 friends wanting to raise money through the use of stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters.  Since then we have expanded our numbers to create a really good group of friends who all share our love of Star Wars and our goal to raise lots of money for charity.   So far since Feb 2018 we have raised over £19,000 for charities such as; 

Manchester Childrens Hospital 

Petal Cancer Research  

Neaves Fund  

British Heart Foundation  

Parkinsons UK 

Bury Hospice  Pendleside Hospice  

4X4 Mountain Rescue Team 

The Firefighters Charity 

 + many more 

Building Community


 We are always looking for new members to join our team.  Don’t have a costume? That’s not a problem as we have a number of members who support our events acting as crew members or taking photos.  We welcome any new members with open arms and always develop our troopers to show the best side of trooping, comradery and professionalism to ensure our event holder gets the happiest bunch of troopers this side of the galaxy.
