About We Can Be Heroes
We Can Be Heroes is a family friendly 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!
After the tremendous success of our Halloween Party in October, we're returning for one more afternoon this year, with a Christmas party at Wonderbar in Leytonstone. The venue is a small, fully licensed, vegan café at 877 High Road, Leytonstone, so tickets for this one will be strictly limited.
The music will be our usual mix of of blockbuster soundtracks and 80s pop, upbeat indie and big, silly rock, plus some seasonally appropriate favourites. Expect to hear Pat Benatar, the Ramones, Weird Al, Weezer, Kiss, AC/DC, Cyndi Lauper, They Might Be Giants, the Jacksons, 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.
Face painting will once again be provided by Love Latouche Faces. There will be drawing materials available for budding comic artists. Plus, a selection of sweet and savoury treats and hot and cold drinks to buy from Wonderbar itself.
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.
Advance tickets cost just £4 per adult, £3 per child under 14 (plus booking fee). Children aged 2 and under are free, but will still need a ticket (no booking fee will apply).
