Event details

Design alongside award-winning costume maker Paul Shriek!


For one day only, join award-winning costume designer Paul Shriek in the Making Studios. Use Paul’s creative input to design your very own super hero masks and capes – perfect for keeping your identity a secret!

Paul’s visit will kick-start Super Hero Fortnight (19 August – 1 September) at Life ­– two weeks of super hero-themed activities during the summer holidays for the whole family to enjoy.


Other activities in Super Hero Fortnight include:


  • Watch Super Hero Science – a show performed in Life’s in-house theatre that explores whether the powers of four super heroes can be replicated using science.
  • Keep crafting! Paul won’t be around to help after 19 August, but our friendly Makers will be on-hand to help you design super hero masks and gauntlets throughout Super Hero Fortnight.
  • Discover how things aren’t always as they seem when our Science Explainers investigate super materials, including incredible inks that disappear when heated up and change colour when cooled down.

In addition, visitors during Super Hero Fortnight can enter a prize draw to win a VIP family ticket to the opening night of the spectacular live action stunt show Marvel Universe LIVE!, at Utilita Arena in Newcastle on Thursday 21 November. The VIP experience includes hospitality and the chance to meet a few stars from the show.*
