We Can Be Heroes Our 2019 Halloween party was awesome! Thanks to everyone who came along and rocked out with us.
Please sign up to our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information about our next even. Because, like the cyborg from the post-apocalyptic future, we'll be back!
We Can Be Heroes is a daytime disco for grown-up geeks and kid sidekicks. It’s for fans of comic books, superheroes, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Dungeons & Dragons and every aspect of geek culture, past and present. It’s a whole afternoon of awesome!
The music is a mix of blockbuster soundtracks and 80s pop, upbeat indie and big, silly rock. Expect to hear The Ramones, AC/DC, Weird Al, Weezer, Kiss, Cyndi Lauper, Pat Benatar, They Might Be Giants, Violent Femmes, Bon Jovi, David Bowie, Kenny Loggins, John Williams and more. All played at a child-friendly volume that’s still perfect for dancing.
A dressing up box with superhero costumes is provided, as well as games and puzzles to play, and loads of drawing materials available for budding comic artists. There will be also be superhero face painting by Love LaTouche. Plus, all ticketholders will get 20% off at Yard Sale Pizza - just show your hand stamp, and it's cowabunga, dudes!
Dressing up really creates the atmosphere. Whilst we don’t have a strict costume policy, we want you - grown-ups and kids - to come dressed up as your favourite characters from comics, films, sci-fi or fantasy. Hero or villain? The choice is yours.
There will be no admission to adults unless they’re part of a group that includes children. So friends, grandparents, mentors, stoic and long-suffering manservants, etc. are all welcome. We are operating an inclusive event, and we want it to be both safe and fun for everyone who comes along.
Tickets are just £5 for adults, £3 for children under 16 (plus booking fee). Children under 2 are free! Advance tickets are available at http://www.wegottickets.com/event/481245
Walthamstow Trades Hall is located just off of Hoe Street, a 5-minute walk from Walthamstow Central and directly opposite Yard Sale Pizza. It has a dance floor, plenty of seating, and a bar with 1990s prices!
