About We Can Be Heroes - Adult tickets

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 Pat Benatar, the Ramones, Weird Al, Weezer, Kiss, AC/DC, Cyndi Lauper, They Might Be Giants, Journey, Violent Femmes, Rush, Bon Jovi, David Bowie, Kenny Loggins, John Williams and more. All played at a child-friendly volume that’s still perfect for dancing. 

Local heroes Walthamstow Dogs will be serving up hot dogs both meat and vegan. There will be a wide selection of homemade cakes from Caro Wood Street - Art Cafe, and traditional and retro confectionery from Sweet Lovin’. A dressing up box is provided, as well as games and puzzles to play, and loads of drawing materials available for budding comic artists. Plus face painting with a sci-fi and superhero slant from LoveLatouche Faces. 

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 is 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. 

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!
