Comic-book heroes are being called to North Yorkshire this half-term as kids and big-kids alike get ready for Superheroes Live.
The weekend event, being held June 3-4 at Lightwater Valley theme park in Ripon, is a celebration of our favourite costumed-heroes, featuring a live crime-fighting stage show starring Batman, Spiderman, Captain America and other characters.
Younger visitors will get the chance to showcase their super powers, make superhero masks, have their faces painted, enter a colouring competition, then take part in a fancy dress parade and even meet their favourite characters.
Mark Bainbridge, general manager at Lightwater Valley, said: “We’re looking forward to half-term and, especially, our Superheroes Live weekend event.
“Visitors are encouraged to get dressed up as their favourite superhero, with those in fancy dress benefitting from half-price entry to the theme park.
“Half-term coincides with the start of our summer season, so from May 29, apart from a handful of days in June, Lightwater Valley will be open seven days a week until the end of August.”
The live superhero shows will take place at noon, 1.30pm and 3pm on the Events Field during the weekend of June 3 and 4.
