Award-winning ‘Invasion Heroes & Legends’ returns for Hallowe’en family spectacular

Heroes, legends – and even villains – will invade the Foyle Arena in Derry on 28th & 29th October for a truly amazing Hallowe’en family spectacular.

The hugely popular ‘Invasion Heroes & Legends’ is to make a return to the city – this time bigger and better than before.  Superheroes, Stormtroopers, Daleks, Transformers and a host of characters from your favourite TV series and films will descend on the city in a show bursting with fun interactive activities, life-sized props and sets.

Fans of Star Wars, feverishly awaiting the release of ‘The Last Jedi’ in December (filmed on location in Malin Head), can meet Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers as well as learn how to defeat them at the Force Training Academy.

Superhero lovers will also get the chance to meet their friendly neighbourhood Spiderman, Superman, Transformers, the Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, enchanted princesses and many more characters of the silver screen and comics.
