Heroes on the big screen get a lot of help to look that good and fight that hard and from October to February Royal Armouries Museum are running a whole series of events revealing the tricks of the trade – Action Heroes (30 Nov & 1 Dec), Space Heroes (28 & 29 Dec), Fantasy Heroes (25 & 26 Jan) and Superheroes for February half term (15 – 23 Feb).

Superheroes (15th February – 23rd February)

They have speeding bullets and a tall building, so where better to discover your inner superhero than at the Armouries this spring. But not all of us are made of steel, so come design and build your own superhero armour. (Evil masterminds also welcome).
