Calling all members of the Heroes’ Alliance! There’s been a dramatic jailbreak at a top secret prison and the planet’s most dangerous supervillains are on the loose. Luckily Kid Normal and the Super Zeroes are on hand to chase them down, but will they find Magpie and his dastardly shadow machine in time, before they bring about the end of the Heroes’ world as we know it?

Join award-winning broadcasters and authors Greg James and Chris Smith for an action-packed Kid Normal event with musical accompaniment from the super-talented Dave Cribb (Amusical). Help create a brand-new superhero story and prepare for lots of games, singing and audience fun!

Words Weekend will post a Social Story on their website for anyone who might find new situations difficult and would like to know what to expect from the festival. Sage Gateshead also offer short familiarisation visits.

We request that everyone is tolerant to the needs of other audience members,  some of whom might need to take a break from a space during an event, for example. Lighting will be raised slightly higher than usual, sound levels will be limited at most events and more comfortable seating options will be offered in some spaces.  Please remember that not all disabilities or health conditions are visible.
