Celebrating superheroes and comic books at the Rugby Museum – with a chance to ‘fly through the air’
Rugby Art Gallery and Museum is ready for a celebration of superheroes and comics on a night at your museum later this month.
Optimus Prime will bring his trusty Transformers lieutenant, Bumblebee, to the event, which will feature a host of superhero and comic book-inspired art activities.
Visitors can fly like a superhero with green screen visual effects and help build a superhero city bathed in UV light.
A Night At Your Museum also offers the opportunity to discover creatures that have inspired countless comic book characters, including insects, spiders and chameleons.
Other activities include superhero drawing and stop motion animation workshops, storytelling sessions, a chill-out zone and messy play sessions for under-fives.
And visitors can also meet real local police and fire heroes.
A Night At Your Museum will take place at the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum on Friday 21 October.
Entry can be booked for 5.30pm, 6.30pm or 7.30pm, with seats priced at £3.50 (free for children under two).
Cllr Howard Roberts, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for leisure and wellbeing, said: “Comics and superheroes have long fueled the imaginations of people of all ages, inspiring dedicated fans across the world and dozens of blockbuster movies, video games and TV series.
“A Night At Your Museum gives visitors the opportunity to explore the worlds of comic book heroes and enjoy the magic of superhero storytelling.”
