AT THE ROYAL ARMOURIES
Favourite superheroes from comic books and the big screen will be assembling at the museum this February half term for a week of exciting crime-fighting combats and performances, bringing all the action of the big screen to the museum as part of the Royal Armouries ‘Make: Believe’ season of events.
Visitors can watch the Superheroes in live stunt shows, combat demonstrations and get up close to their weapons and armour to find out how they work.
The daily programme will include a selection of live-action combats – Superhero smackdowns, talks and tours plus lots of photo opportunities with roaming costumed characters.
Even if you’re not made of steel and don’t have superpowers you can still discover your inner superhero by designing and making your own special armour in a make-&-take craft sessions.
As well as all the action and adventures there will be face-painting and loads of great photo opportunities with a host of costumed characters.
The event supports the museum’s new display ‘Make: Believe’, a capsule collection showcasing the museum’s extensive collection of arms, armour and ephemera from cult and classic movies, television shows, stage and more. With remarkable items including original ‘Star Wars’ blaster, helmets from ‘Monty Python’, Lancelot’s armour from the movie ‘Excalibur’ and even a vampire killing kit, it’s proving to be a must-see for any visitor.
