The Anglia Square Super Saturday event made a triumphant return to the city on Saturday, August 31, as hordes of hopeful heroes took on new secret identities.

The event was bigger and better than ever before with families enjoying activities at the Square from 11am to 3pm, with an Autism Hour from 9.30am to 10.30am.

Children enjoyed the event's creation station, where they got the chance to create their own superhero capes, badges and masks.

And attendees learned how to use their superpowers, as they met idols Iron Man, Spider Man and Black Widow, who taught them to use super ropes on the bouncy castle, before gaining super school graduation certificates.
