Star Wars Celebration 2023: Date and Location

In case you missed it, here are the details for the date, time, and location of Star Wars Celebration 2023…

Where is Star Wars Celebration 2023? Star Wars Celebration 2023 will be held in London, England, at the Excel Center.

When is Star Wars Celebration 2023? Star Wars Celebration 2023 will take place from April 7-10, 2023. This is less than a full year from the 2022 convention. AKA, we don’t have to wait super long to get back into costume!

Where is the London convention center for Star Wars Celebration 2023? The London Star Wars Celebration in 2023 will be held in the Excel Center in London, England. The Excel Center is located at:

ExCeL London
One Western Gateway
Royal Victoria Dock

How do we know for sure that this is the case?

Because the official Star Wars Celebration Twitter account announced and confirmed the new convention details in a tweet on May 29, 2022.

Star Wars Celebration 2023 Tickets, Hotels, & Special Guests

If you’re eager to get ahead of the game, then look no further…

We’ve got all the details for Star Wars Celebration 2023, including tickets, hotels, special guests, and everything else.

While not all of this information is available right now, however…

We will have all the updated info as soon as Disney & Star Wars / Lucasfilm Ltd. make the big announcements and confirm everything along these lines.

Here is what we know so far, though:

When do Star Wars Celebration 2023 tickets go on sale? Tickets will go on sale sometime after the end of Celebration 2022 in Anaheim, California. Once the official announcement is made by Disney, we’ll add all the details right here!

What hotel is closest to the ExCeL Center in London? There are a number of hotels in the nearby area, but one to keep in mind is the Aloft London Excel, which is a part of the Marriott Hotel chain. See more here.

What special guests have been announced for Star Wars Celebration 2023? While they have not announced special guests or celebrities yet, we do know that 2023 is the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: Episode VII: Return of the Jedi, so we can expect some major names to be there!

Star Wars Celebration 2023: Other Info

We’re sure you’ll agree that’s a lot of cool stuff!

Even with less than a year between the 2022 and 2023 Star Wars Celebrations, there’s a lot to look forward to in the interim.

The move to Europe is an exciting one as well, given that most Star Wars Celebrations have taken place in the United States.

As ComicBook.com writes:

In addition to three conventions held at the ExCel Centre, Star Wars Celebration also hosted an event at Germany’s Messe Essen in 2013. Outside of the three Europe stops (four if including next year), plus the 2008 event in Japan, all other Celebrations have been hosted stateside.


In other words, the Star Wars Celebration has really only taken place in the US, UK, Germany, and Japan.

There’s a lot of other options if they decide to go global again in the future, post-London 2023, into Star Wars Celebration 2024 and beyond!

With that said, that’s pretty much all there is to know at the moment. Stay tuned for more exciting details to come for Star Wars Celebration 2023 at the Excel Center in London, England, Europe, from April 7 to April 10, 2023.

Have a magical day!
