Superhero weekend in store to mark Father’s Day

A superhero themed event is aiming to make Father’s Day extra special this weekend.

Manor Walks Shopping and Leisure, in Cramlington, is hosting a superhero-themed event and competitions on Saturday (June 15).

Visitors can have their photographs taken with superheroes from 11am to noon and 2pm to 3pm.

Shoppers can also try out Grainger Games’ Xbox 360 pods while there will a children’s fancy dress competition for the best dressed superhero, with participants receiving a goodie bag from Vue Cinema Cramlington and a family ticket to the venue.

Other offers and giveaways will be taking place on the day.

Bruno Coppola, general manager at Manor Walks, said: “We always enjoy giving something back to our loyal customers and our Father’s Day superhero spectacular aims to do just that once again by celebrating our shopper’s super dads.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming a host of superheroes to the centre over the Father’s Day weekend and rewarding those taking part with lots of goodies as well as providing some surprises – all of which we hope will make this Father’s Day a special one for the region’s super dads.

“We’re also asking fans of our Facebook page to tell us why they think their dad is a superhero and we will be sharing their stories with our followers so head to the official Manor Walks Facebook page to get involved.”
